About the book:

Evans's third edition reflects the impact of technology on all phases of collection development. While retaining the structure of previous editions, it incorporates new information and reading lists into each chapter. In addition, there is a new chapter that focuses solely on electronic materials. Emphasizing collection development in general rather than the process in any particular institutional setting, the author provides a thorough discussion of information needs assessment, policies of collection development, and the selection process itself. He considers acquisitions, the major online bibliographic services, publishers and publishing, distributors and vendors, weeding, and the hows and whys of cooperative collection development and resource sharing. Copyright, intellectual freedom, and censorship; serials; government documents; fiscal management; automation; and preservation are some of the other topics discussed.
