Klinck Memorial Library Policies: Collection Development

Collection Development

Collection Development is the process of creating useful, balanced collections over time within a set budget, based on the assessed and ongoing information needs of the library’s users. Building a useful collection depends on selection criteria, resource sharing, replacement of items, and routine de-accessioning, or weeding. The collection development policy guides the Concordia University Chicago Klinck Memorial Library in selecting materials that support our community and enhance its existing collections.
