Created for those with little formal LIS training working in small, rural libraries, this guide will also be useful for librarians who are new to this area of service or need to brush up on their skills. In a volume covering everything from community analysis through developing collection policies, librarians will learn how to use reviews to acquire materials as well as to help weed the collection, and get hints for simple repair or rebinding items. Attention is given to marketing the collection to patrons, and to handling censorship issues when collections are challenged.
