Collection Development Analysis

The assignment was to get our hands on a collection development policy and analyze it compared to ALA’s recommendations. I found one for the School Who Shall Not Be Named Independent School District (SWSNBN ISD).

Overall I had mostly good things to say about SWSNBN ISD, but since they were kind enough to let me use their documents, I’ll not use their name for the sake of the few critiques I had on their policy.

This was an interesting assignment, to dig into the school’s policy. I was so happy to see them defer to ALA’s positions/ website but wish that it would have been all neatly bundled into one document for the sake of ease of use.
