Case Study of the California Experience in Library Collection Building.
Voigt, Melvin J.
A variety of examples of collection development in a university system is provided by this case study. The University of California's nine campuses provide a wide variety of library acquisition experience. A retrospective view of their development reflects the changing pace and pattern of library collection building over the years. The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) development is interesting because the collection had immediate pressures of advanced graduate programs and UCSD had to use a variety of devices to meet specialized needs as they arose, while, at the same time, attempting to develop well-rounded basic collections for both undergraduates and graduate students. Development of each of the nine university libraries is traced using the following headings: (1) introduction, (2) the large campuses, (3) specialized institutional collections, (4) towards research--variations in patterns, (5) the problem of distribution and uniqueness, and (6) the UCSD experience.
