Are collection development policies worth the effort? A study of collection development policies and collection development in three Swedish public libraries. (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to look closer at collection development and the use of collection development policies in Swedish public libraries, with the help of a few examples. Through interviews with three librarians in three different public libraries and an analysis of these libraries’ collection development policies, the authors try to find out how the creation of collection development policies takes place in these libraries, how these librarians use the policy, how these policies have been followed up and revised, and also to see what the policies of these libraries include. The material of the study suggests that a lot of work is required to write the policies, and that the written policy itself is seldom used by the librarians. The interviewed librarians still find the policies useful because the writing of them gave a detailed understanding of what the collection of the library contains. The staff was positive to work with creating the policies. The policies are not linked to the goals and missions declared in other documents concerning the libraries’ work. The policies have not been revised or followed up since they were written a few years back. The policies contain details concerning the present state of the collections, but contain very little information aimed at persons outside the library staff. Neither detailed guidelines on selection and deselection nor detailed plans for how the sections of the collections should develop are included.
