COLLECTION MANAGEMENT OF INFORMATION RESOURCE I COLLECTION MANAGEMENT & DEVELOPMENT Collection Goal Response to Audience Need Example A public library has a mission to meet the needs of children. What are those needs? Certainly, they have a need for materials to help them do their school work, but perhaps there is a good school library that meets these needs. They also have a need for recreational reading materials. Many children are also very interested in electronic information and games. Based on this, your library may choose to focus its collection development goals for children's materials on recreational reading and electronic information for children.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
