Collection Development

Collection development is the process of adding and removing resources to and from the BHCC Library's collection. Librarians are continuously selecting books, DVDs, databases, and other resources to augment or replace old, outdated, damaged, or irrelevant items.

Faculty and staff members can help with the collection development process by:

  • Meeting, calling, or emailing their library subject specialist, as well as other BHCC Library staff members
  • Reviewing the collection development policy and the materials we have for their disciplines
  • Recommending some titles for us to purchase
  • Scheduling a library orientation and/or information literacy session
