About the Author:

Peggy Johnson, began her library career as a music cataloger and has been a children's librarian in a public library, and serials cataloger, technical services head, and a senior collection development officer in academic libraries. In 2002, she served as interim university librarian at the University of Minnesota. Johnson has consulted on library development in Uganda, Rwanda, Morocco, and China. She is a frequent speaker and consultant on collection development and management and on change in libraries, two areas of particular interest. She edits the journal, Technicalities: Information Forum for the Library Services Practitioner, has published numerous papers, and written and edited several books.

From Booklist:

In recent years, books about electronic resources have greatly outnumbered those covering collection development. Fortunately, Johnson has answered this shortcoming. In nine chapters, she covers the entire field of collection development, from its history to collection analysis to marketing. She succinctly discusses ways to organize and staff for selection, how to write collection plans and budgets, how to manage collections, and how to set up cooperative collection plans with other libraries. The book closes with an appendix listing selection aids, a glossary, and an index of names and subjects. Invaluable to library students and beginning librarians, this book also has helpful ideas and information for even seasoned collections librarians. RBB
