COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT:
SURVIVAL TACTICS IN AN AGE OF LESS


Friday, April 12, 1991

IBM Gallery of Science and Art
Madison Avenue at 56th Street, New York, New York

Automation, online public access catalogs, online subscription agencies, and electronic vendor services are affecting virtually every aspect of acquisitions: the types of materials acquired, how they are acquired, processing procedures, and personnel qualifications and duties. In a time of diminishing library resources, administrators must often choose between acquisition and access services. Should we continue to acquire expensive books and journals or is access enough? What is the impact of technology on collection development? What alternatives to acquisition are available? Where has collaborative collection development and resource sharing worked, and what are the problems in implementing such programs? What is the impact of technology on collection development? What criteria can be used for making tough choices?
