Collection Development Policy.
Monk, John S.
This document outlines the collection development policies for the Eisenhower National Clearinghouse for Mathematics and Science Education (ENC). It details the clientele the collection is intended to serve, the scope and boundary of the collection, the methods employed to identify and acquire resources for the collection, the selection and prioritization process, and general collection maintenance considerations. The policies outlined here are those used by ENC staff to develop and maintain the physical and online collections. The physical collection contains those items obtained by the Clearinghouse and stored in the on-site repository or at the Capital Collection at The George Washington University (Washington, D.C.). The online collection consists of electronic resources such as computer databases containing images and text, World Wide Web, Gopher, and other resources that exist only as electronic files that can be made available to ENC clientele through Internet links using references in the ENC catalog or links within ENC Online, the ENC website.
