Collection Management Honor Roll

The Montana State Library Commission has a Collection Management Honor Roll. To be on this honor roll, a library must have a current and approved collection development policy on file at the State Library and the librarian must add new items to OCLC's WorldCat catalog every year. We will talk about the OCLC catalog in the next chapter, but briefly it is a catalog where libraries around the world list their items. This makes it possible for other libraries to request items. For more information on the Collection Management Honor Roll, contact the Continuing Education Coordinator.
