Collection Development Statement.
Saint Louis Community Coll., MO.
Prepared jointly by the instructional resources staff at all three campus locations and the administrative center of St. Louis Community College (SLCC), this handbook defines SLCC's collection development program and offers college-wide guidance for the acquisition of appropriate instructional materials and equipment and for the reevaluation and maintenance of these items. Following introductory material, the philosophy and mission of SLCC and the objectives of its instructional resources and collection development programs are specified. The next sections establish the locus of responsibility for collection development, provide a description of the clientele served, and review the school's philosophy of service with respect to instructional resources. After affirming the commitment of the instructional resources program to intellectual freedom, the handbook presents the standards and guidelines developed for instructional resources and indicates which materials are under the jurisdiction of the program. Next, the criteria for materials selection and evaluation, the definition of equipment, and the criteria for its selection are presented. The final sections outline budgetary responsibilities, procedures for networking with other libraries and institutions, policies on gifts, and the provision for the annual review of the collection development handbook.
