Collection Development Issues for the Practitioner IG


To identify the forces of change in the development and management of collections as they affect the individual selector, and as they contribute to the selector's ability to address and manage these changes. To this end the group will take such actions as presenting forums and programs, designing guidelines, identifying resources, and collecting and disseminating information. The group may examine in greater detail matters raised in other CMS groups and it will act as section liaison with other ALCTS groups dealing with related interests.
