Library collection development policies : academic, public, and special libraries by Frank W Hoffmann( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book represents an ongoing effort to fill the void in the library literature relating to collection development policies. The authors, whose experience each spans four decades as library educators and practitioners, created the book---as well as a forthcoming companion volume devoted to school libraries---to assist both library school students and professionals in the field in the compilation, revision, and implementation of collection development policies. Cutting edge trends such as digital document delivery and library cooperation are also covered. Furthermore, given the premise that a well-rounded policy reflects all activities concerning the collection management process---including the evaluation, selection, acquisition, and weeding of information resources---it is hoped that this work will also prove useful to non-librarians possessing some kind of stake in high quality library holdings, such as library board members, politicians, and administrators directly responsible for library operations, and institutional patrons

Fashion & merchandising fads by Frank W Hoffmann( Book )

Fads by nature and by definition are hard to capture, yet Hoffmann and Bailey have captured over one hundred of the passing fashion fancies and merchandising miracles during America's short history in their latest collection of fads, Fashion & Merchandising Fads. Life devoid of fads is impossible to imagine, and the fads that do enter our lives become vehicles for amusement upon retrospection. How long any fad stays in vogue is anybody's guess, but Hoffmann and Bailey have again found those fads that somehow took root and flourished, if only for a short period of time, in America.
