Policy 4: Collection Development


The purpose of the Collection Development Policy is to guide the selection of library materials, which are leased, purchased, or received by gift or donation.

Library Director's Responsibility

The Santa Rosa County Library System director is responsible for selection and management of the library collection within the framework of collection guidelines based on impartial and judicious selection practices, not personal opinion, prejudice, or censorship. The director delegates collection responsibilities to appropriate staff members who are qualified by education, training, and experience to identify materials and resources.
