A collection development policy model is included along with collection development policies for specific library collections, i.e., economics, geology, theater and dance, and the film library. A library collection assessment plan model which outlines elements to be included or answered in each subject assessment proposal, a schedule for collection development planning of assessment workload, recommendations on collection development policies and collection assessments, and the formal charge of the task force are also included.
