Organizing and Servicing a Collection of Standardized Tests: A Manual for Librarians.
Simmons, Robert M.
This guide to the acquisition and development of a collection of standardized tests in libraries and resource centers is intended to aid the librarian in meeting increasing patron demand for sample test instruments. Areas covered are (1) collection building, including the determination of potential user needs and the use of standard selection tools; (2) bibliographic control, including informal title indexing, subject headings, and printed lists of holdings; (3) processing and storage methods; and (4) policies and procedures, including legal and ethical limitations on access to test materials. A selected and annotated bibliography cites comprehensive lists, periodicals, and texts. Appendices provide a list of tests most frequently requested at Bridgewater, a publisher's directory of popular tests, and a sample test use policy. (FM)
