Whether a library’s reference collection is large or small, it needs constant attention. Singer's book offers information and insight on best practices for reference collection management, no matter the size, and shows why managing without a plan is a recipe for clutter and confusion. In this very practical guide, reference librarians will learn

  • The importance of collection development policies, and how to effectively involve others in the decision-making process
  • New insights into selecting reference materials, both print and electronic
  • Strategies for collection maintenance, including the all-important issue of weeding

This important new book will help librarians make better reference decisions, aligned to customer needs and expectations, especially significant with today’s limited budgets.
