This work addresses the challenges of electronic publishing and puts issues of collection development into perspective, providing students and practitioners of library and information science with a broad understanding of the collection development process. The book covers all phases of collection development-from needs assessment, policies, and the selection process (theory and practice) to publishers, serials, protection, legal issues, and censorship and intellectual freedom. Each chapter has been expanded and updated with new material and reading lists. In addition, a chapter that is new to this edition deals with e-serials; and two appendixes contain samples of policies related to electronic concerns. It is an excellent survey of the state of the art of collection development and a comprehensive text.

From Library Journal:

Last revised in 1995, this comprehensive collection development textbook has been updated to "reflect the changing environment of collection management," particularly in the area of electronic resources. Because of the necessity of keeping the final book to a reasonable length, materials from earlier editions are now for the first time available on the Internet. In particular, what had been Chapter 4 ("Selection Process: Theory") and two appendixesA"Book and Electronic Collection Policies" and the International Coalition of Library Consortia (ICOLC) "Statement of Current Perspective and Preferred Practices for the Selection and Purchase of Electronic Information"Acan be found at lib.lmu.edu/dlc4 and www.lu.com.AWWW
