This new entry in the Crash Course series explaining collection development was created for those with little formal LIS training working in small, rural libraries; this guide will also be useful for librarians who are new to this area of service or need to brush up on their skills. From community analysis through developing collection policies, librarians will learn how to use reviews to acquire materials as well as those tools to help weed the collection, how to marketing the collection to the patrons, and handle censorship issues when collections are challenged.
