Coleman, Sterling, Jr.
Journal of Archival Organization, v2 n1-2 p103-115 2004
This article explores the archivists' and librarians' definition of a collection, and how they respectively arrange their collections in the context of collection development and collection management issues in a digital library. It centers on possible cooperative solutions and highlights, as a case study, the efforts of the Auburn University Digital Projects Committee to meet these challenging collection issues. (Contains 9 notes.)
