Document Type



Collection development librarians often use Web resources as they select materials, but only a few libraries have built a working Web page for this purpose. The authors suggest that a collection development Web page is a valuable asset to an academic library. The Web page can be used to communicate with university faculty and others outside the library, and can provide a single source for links to Web tools used by collection development librarians. The authors discuss sources of Web-based bibliographer’s tools and suggest useful types of information to include.
