This topical edited collection is cross-sectoral and international in scope, drawing together the perspectives of practitioners and academics at the forefront of modern collection development. They explore how practitioners can take an active role influencing strategy in this new environment, draw on case studies that illustrate the key changes in context, and consider how collection development might evolve in the future.

The collection is divided into four sections looking at the key themes:

  • The conceptual framework including a review of the literature
  • Trends in library supply such as outsourcing and managing suppliers
  • Trends in electronic resources including the open access movement and e-books
  • Making and keeping your collection effectively including engaging with the user-community and developing commercial skills.
Readership: LIS students and all practitioners involved in collection development and management in academic, school, public, commercial and other special libraries.

Review:

"I would recommend this book to all those interested in collection development...Its coverage is extensive and reflects a cross-section of the experience of librarians and information professionals." (Journal of Librarianship and Information Science)

"...recommended to practitioners from all libraries. It can also serve as recommended reading for undergraduate students considering the spectrum of topics covered, the ease of writing style, and the excellent lists of references." (The Electronic Library)

"In Collection Development in the Digital Age, editors Fieldhouse and Marshall explore developments in collection development and their influence on policy and practice, draw on case studies that illustrate changes and desirable skills in context, and contemplate how collection development may evolve in time. The book will appeal to library and information science professionals involved in collection management in academic and public libraries, as well as students in the field."

(Library Management)

"Highly recommended for all professionals who wish to ensure that they develop their collections to preserve the past, serve the present and provide for the future."
(CILIP Update)
