Chronicling the recent rapid changes in library collection development and management, editors Audrey Marshall and Maggie Fieldhouse present a topical collection, international in scope, which draws together the perspectives of practitioners and academics at the forefront of contemporary collection development in all types of settings. The contributors explore how practitioners can take an active role influencing strategy in this new environment, draw on case studies that illustrate the key changes in context, and consider how collection development might evolve in the future. In the book’s four sections, the authors look at key themes such as:
Historical background on the subject, with an overview of the literature
Trends in library supply, including outsourcing and managing suppliers 
The open access movement, e-books, and other electronic resources 
Creating and maintaining electronic collections effectively, including engaging with users and developing commercial skills
This will appeal to all LIS professionals but is essential reading for library and information students and all practitioners involved in collection development and management in academic, school and public libraries. It’s also indispensable for those working in commercial and other special libraries.
