Collection Building aims to provide well-researched and authoritative information on collection development for librarians in academic, public, company and special libraries. It publishes papers which have been accepted after blind review by two reviewers.
As information professionals there is constant pressure to make management decisions regarding which information resources you should be purchasing in order to build the best collection possible and provide your users with the most relevant information selection. Collection Building covers the most up-to-date news, views and trends in library collection to help you make these decisions.
Lively, well-researched articles written by experts in the field combine authoritative information and practical guidelines on all aspects of collection building, including new information formats, resource development and special information requirements.
The journal offers expert analyses of resource development, technology and resource sharing. It also looks at developing methodologies for expanding and managing collections through intelligent purchase-making decisions, so that your library provides information that is both accessible and relevant to users. Bibliographic essays from information professionals are also featured.
Collection Building is available as part of an online subscription to the Emerald Library Studies eJournals Collection. For more information, please email email@example.com or visit the Emerald Library Studies eJournals Collection page.
