Charge

The Collection Development Committee (CDC) is the primary group for deliberations on Library collection policies and advises the AUL for Collections. All issues pertaining to the collection, including the materials budget and funding, purchasing and withdrawal procedures, preservation, and matters pertaining to the acquisition of and access to all forms of information are considered by the CDC.

Membership Details

The Committee is chaired by the AUL for Collections. Membership includes representatives elected from within the following eight divisions: Humanities, Social Sciences, Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Area Studies, Special Collections, Law, and Central Public Services. The representative from the Technical Services Division is the Acquisitions Librarian. The following persons also are members: Library Business Office Manager, AUL for Budget and Planning, Electronic Resources Librarian, Preservation Librarian, Undergraduate Librarian, and Head of Access Services. Elected members serve two year staggered terms.

In addition, to broaden the knowledge base about the work of collection development, two non-voting interns selected from among tenure-track faculty are chosen for one-year appointments. Intern positions are advertised annually, and appointment is made by the chair of the CDC.
