At a time of shrinking budgets and increasing demands, libraries are facing problems in meeting their needs for new collection development specialists. This volume proposes creative solutions to the three significant problems experienced by library administrators: attracting new collection development librarians, educating them in appropriate library school programs, and training them to perform their jobs. The chapters in this book, written by leading collection development officers, practitioners, and educators, cover innovative ways of looking at the entire range of collection development activities, from goals and objectives in staff development for collection work to scenarios from the next millennium.

"This collection of essays is a nice addition to the professional reading collection."-Journal of Academic Librarianship
"This is clearly an important work that will serve administators and practitioners, as well as library school students and faculty, in good stead for some time to come."-Wilson Library Bulletin
"This is a thoughtful, well-edited collection that deserves the attentio of curriculum planners.
