With the myriad number of print and electronic materials now available for school libraries, librarians need to know how to select the right materials for their libraries, and how to maintain, evaluate, circulate, and promote their collections. The Collection Program in Schools: Concepts and Practices, Fifth Edition is a one-stop resource that thoroughly overviews the policies and procedures for timely and effective collection development for school libraries. The work is organized by chapters that explain the various tasks involved in effective collection development for school libraries. No other text includes a listing of the advantages, disadvantages, and copyright concerns of various formats. This introductory text also provides guidance on how to write policy and procedure manuals for school libraries; addresses concerns that impact collection development, such as ethical and fiscal issues, the curriculum, the school library environment, and special groups of students; and includes several figures and tables relating to these topics.
