Collection Development Policy.
Wright, Dianne H., Ed.
This detailed written guide of the Valdosta State College Library coordinates the library's collection development policies with specific teaching and research needs of the college. It identifies subject subdivisions supporting the work of the departments, guides daily book selection, and provides guidance in the duplication of materials, location of materials, and acceptance of gifts. Statements contained in the policy are of two types: those that deal with the subject collections, including satellite libraries; and those that deal with specialized areas, predominantly material types. Subject selection policies contain a statement of purpose, a statement of general collection guidelines, and specific subject subdivisions with assigned collecting levels. Specialized areas include the Georgia collection, government documents, microforms, multi-media, newspapers, oral history, rare books, reference, serials, VSC Collection/Archives, and weeding. An index is provided. (RAA)
