Collection Development as a Social Process.
Lee, Hur-Li
Journal of Academic Librarianship, v29 n1 p23-31 Jan 2003
This case study examines social influences in research libraries' collection development. It shows that individuals' ideologies and political agenda shape their impression of user needs and their decision making. The study also reveals how the institution's operating structures, campus politics of interdisciplinarity, personnel deployment, and aspiration for prestige dominate collection development. (Author)
