TITLE: Cornell University Library. Collection Development Policy Statements
DESCRIPTION: "This page introduces a series of documents that describes the dynamic state of library collections at Cornell University. Each statement was written by one of the thirty bibliographers, curators, and selectors responsible for managing a subject or area and reflects that librarian's view of constituencies, collection strengths, formats and other issues. The documents are organized here by four headings, reflecting the groups that coordinate collection development in the library." Very nice place for collection development policies. Covers many subject areas.
