Assessment of the Economics and Finance Collections at Central Missouri State University, Warrensburg, Missouri.
This document describes a collection assessment made of the Economics and Finance holdings at Ward Edwards Library at Central Missouri State University (CMSU). The assessment is divided into three parts: (1) books, (2) serials, and (3) standing orders/reference materials. In addition to standard collection development sources such as "Magazines for Libraries," serial holdings are compared to those recommended in several economics and finance journals. The paper also includes a matrix, which takes factors such as cost and indexing into consideration in order to make collection development decisions. Appendices include: lists of courses in economics and finance at CMSU; financial research journals and other media ranked by total number of citations; list of economics and finance journals purchased by the library, including their format and price; matrix of journals, prices, databases in which they are indexed, if they are recommended titles in review sources, and if they have been requested through interlibrary loan; and a list of economics and finance standing orders with price information.
