Summary "Health Sciences Collection Management for the Twenty-First Century is intended for those with any level of experience in health sciences collection management. This book, from the authoritative Medical Library Association, starts with the context of health sciences publishing and covers the foundations of selection, budgeting, and management. It won't tell new librarians what yo buy, but it will give them background and criteria that should be considered in their selections. However, the focus of this book is not only best practices but also the deeper changes in the field that affect decision making. Subjects often omitted from or overlooked in many collection development textbooks, such as marketing or accessibility, are included as part of the larger collections landscape. Contributors bring their own perspectives to the topics with practical, specific, and timely detail. While whole books have been written about individual topics, the treatment of each topic here focuses on the unique perspective and concerns of the collection manager" -- Back cover.
