In this episode we will talk about one of the foundations of all library service: Collection Development. Without good collections, we might be nice places to visit - but it’s not a good library.

This week we have returning Guest Host Amy, from the Great River Regional Library System to help us get some ideas!

Collection development can involve all kinds of things - books, DVDs, periodicals, maps, online material, toys - whatever. Good collection development principles will be pretty similar regardless of the type of collection you are building, but today we will probably talk a lot about books. Use those ideas to go across all your other collection ideas.
