    DescriptionThis latest edition continues to cover all phases of collection development-from needs assessment, policies, and the selection process (theory and practice), to publishers, serials, protection, legal issues, censorship, and intellectual freedom. Each chapter has been extensively revised to reflect changing practices, policies, and technologies. To this end, some chapters-electronic materials, government information, audiovisual materials, and resource sharing-have been almost completely rewritten. In addition, electronic serials, introduced in the 4th edition, has been combined with its print counterpart in a single chapter. New to this edition is a CD containing supplementary material; a companion Web site () will also be maintained to ensure URLs referenced throughout the text are kept up to date. As the authors put it in their introductory chapter, whatever environment one works in, collection development is an exciting challenge that requires lifelong learning. Students and practitioners alike will benefit greatly from this state-of-the-art text.

    Review quote
    "Evans and Saponaro's work has been the standard text and authority on collection development for all types of libraries. It still is...So if you are a current student or want to get serious about updating what you learned long ago in library school, then this is certainly the core center of professional reading...Evans and Saponaro is recommended as a central work." - Teacher Librarian "[A] wonderful resource that every student should keep in their professional library and refer to as issues pop up during their career...[I] recommend it as a tool for library administration and librarians at all levels...Highly recommended as a text and as a reference for practicing librarians." - Technical Services Quarterly
