  • Description

Managing information resources is more important than ever in the digital world. Librarians can provide leadership by drawing on enduring principles and updated skills to provide organized access. This book is an accessible practice-based guide encompassing all areas of collection management, but with a particular focus upon what is new or different from traditional approaches. Integrating discussion of available electronic information sources throughout, it covers: collection management in the organizational context; collection development policies; library co-operation and networking; selection principles and resources; principles of acquisition, access and licensing; budget management; collection evaluation and review; and preservation and weeding of library resources. Features many examples and case studies, together with focus questions at the start of each chapter and suggestions for further reading at the end. It also includes a detailed annotated bibliography.
