Harvard Law Library Collection Development Policy and Collection Development Matrix

Harvard Law Library Collection Development Policy and Collection Development Matrix

For those who have ever wondered how we make decisions about what to buy for our Library’s collection – help has arrived! We have just published our Collection Development Policy along with a graphical representation of our collection development practices, the Collection Development Matrix. These documents should be seen as general guides to our thinking and will be modified as our collecting practices expand, contract, or change. We hope that by sharing these documents those who rely on our collection will come to a greater understanding of its scope and get a better sense of how we make decisions in the ever changing information landscape. Comments and questions are always welcome.
