The new edition of this standard source for collection development in school libraries is divided into three sections covering the setting, selection of materials, and administrative concerns. All aspects of collection development--from environment to selection procedures to collection evaluation--are clearly set out and easy to locate using either the exhaustive table of contents or accurate index. New information includes added chapters on copyright and Internet use; developing technologies (e.g., e-books, DVDs, and Web sites) and their effect on access to information and resource sharing; alternative funding and grantsmanship; and listings of electronic resources (accurate as of November 2000) at the ends of appropriate chapters. Replete with bibliographies, charts, lists of organizations, and a comprehensive resource list, this is an indispensable source of information for most school libraries. RBB
