The Collection is the Library

The library collection is one of the most important parts of the library because to the public the collection is the library. A good collection can make or break a library, and making a great music collection is challenging because of the variety of materials and formats involved.

The purpose of this site is to help librarians in the basics of collection development policies, item selection and furthering professional development as it relates to music.

Have fun playing in the Music Collection Development Toolbox!
