This publication represents the first Collection Development Manual (CDM) for the Alumni Medical Library. At the Alumni Medical Library, the Manual is used as a working reference for librarians; but the Library also uses this policy document to evaluate the effectiveness of its collection activities, and for the development of cooperative programs and services within Boston University, Boston Library Consortium, Massachusetts Health Sciences Network (MaHSLIN), NorthEast Regional Libraries (NERL). Librarians use the CDM as a model for their own collection development policymaking and planning. In collaboration with Alumni Medical Library, the Charles River Campus Libraries (Mugar, Law, Theology) review the policies in this document to determine collection boundaries.
