About this book

The last decade has seen profound changes in how library collections are developed and managed, driven by a rapidly evolving market place, more sophisticated user-expectations and fast-moving changes in technology. Digital resources are increasingly central to collections and this has changed the very concept of collection development and the role of the information professional.

This collection is cross-sectoral and international in scope, drawing together the perspectives of practitioners and academics at the forefront of modern collection development. They explore how practitioners can take an active role influencing strategy in this new environment, draw on case studies that illustrate the key changes in context, and consider how collection development might evolve in the future.

Contents


The conceptual framework including a review of the literature
Trends in library supply such as outsourcing and managing suppliers
Trends in electronic resources including the open access movement and e-books
Making and keeping your collection effectively including engaging with the user-community and developing commercial skills.
