Library Science Collection Development Statement


The library science collection supports the work and professional development of the librarians and library staff in the operation of Yale University Library. SCOPA charged this subcommittee with managing this area when CSC brought it to SCOPA in Fall 2015.

Items generally include professional literature centering on the following areas: collection development, digital management, preservation, metadata and cataloging, technical services, emerging technologies, archives and records management, special collections, user access, information literacy, library information technology, library administration, and other areas of professional interest. Reports on best library practices, trends, and the future of the libraries are also included.
