In this practical handbook, newly updated for 2010, Carol Alabaster focuses on developing a collection with high-quality materials while saving time and money. She addresses key collection development questions, including 

  • What criteria are used to identify a core title? 
  • What is the process for making selections? 
  • How is a collection maintained and improved?
  • How are core titles tracked in the library's acquisition and circulation systems?

Packed with selection resources and sample core lists in seven subject areas, this soup-to-nuts manual will be useful whether you are starting from scratch or revitalizing an existing collection.
