Q: How do I align my collection development policy with stakeholder needs?
After appraising of the content you have and will be acquiring, you will need to select the content you will manage and preserve. As part of this process, you should assess your institutional and departmental mission statements and determine if the content in question fits within your mission. You will also need to determine if the content has value to your institution, if it's feasible to preserve the content, and if you can provide reliable access of the content to your users. These questions can be addressed by the creation of a strong collection development policy.
