Quality collection development isn't easy. This chapter will take a look at what we mean by quality. But what is collection development? We are referring to assessing the library's collection, the collection development policy, selecting materials, and weeding the collection. In addition, we're going to talk briefly about acquisitions simply because it is closely related to collection development. We'll also discuss a few things that are unique to Montana, such as the Collection Management Honor Roll, the book challenge list, and the statewide licensing options.
