Collection Development Policies and Assessment Committee

In 2005, the Collection Development Policies, Collection Evaluation Techniques, and Reference Collection Development committees combined into the Collection Development Policies and Assessment Committee.

Purpose:

The Collection Development Policies and Assessment Committee identifies, develops, evaluates, and disseminates information and resources relevant for all library collections. It will:

  • Educate librarians about collection development policies and assessment techniques through publications, programs, discussion groups, and other methods;
  • Encourage librarians to establish collection development policies, guidelines, and techniques to evaluate their libraries’ collections;
  • Promote research on methodologies, techniques, instruments, and best practices related to policy development and collection assessment.
