Collection Development

The Collection Development Community of Interest is primarily a networking group and is closely aligned to the Heads of Resource Management  [HRM] Committee of the BLC and often meets with HRM at the annual BLC Networking Day.  Membership is open to anyone interested in and responsible for collection development or related topics. 

Cooperative Collection Agreements

The Heads of Resource Management has worked closely with a number of the other subject related BLC communities to develop cooperative collection agreements that define retention agreements for monographs, chemistry and music materials.  Such agreements and the work of the BLC communities are core to ensuring the preservation of and access to the scholarly record and support the core resource sharing mission of the BLC.
