Sample Library Collection Development Policies

Prof. Corazon Nera served as the resource speaker on Collection Management during the PLAI-STRLC Regional Conference on “Empowering Librarians in the 21st Century” last September 24-26, 2008 at the Queen Margarette Hotel, Lucena City. The organizers were requested to provide sample collection development policies to be distributed to participants.

Since most of the sample collection development policies are available online, we deemed it proper to just list the given samples with links provided for the participants (and other interested readers of this blog) to download and save their own copy.
