Collection Development

Meet The Information Needs Of Your Students

Collection development is an essential function of libraries because it allows you to make available needed resources to

your users. Successful collection development requires providing users with these materials when they need them!


Want to make collection development easy? Let us help with your materials selection responsibilities!


Invite us out for 1 hour, 1/2 day, or a whole day at your library!
