This sixth edition of the classic first produced by Carter and Bonk 25 years ago has been restructured and revised to reflect the major changes in collection development theory and practice in recent years, especially the increased emphasis on collection development. New topics include the growth of resource-sharing networks, the importance of nonbook formats, the greater complexity of censorship challenges, and the expansion of the library's potential informational role.
