Collection Management Group: Purpose Statement

The Collection Management Group, a subgroup of the Access Services Committee, works collaboratively with selectors and Distributed Technical Services staff to maintain the integrity and accessibility of the Rutgers University Libraries' collections. The group, comprised of library staff members from all three campuses, develops accurate shelving practices, optimizes use of shelf space, ensures items locations are accurately represented, identifies items in need of preservation, and maintains collections in sound physical condition at all the Rutgers libraries. The group compiles, tracks, and assesses statistics to improve the effectiveness of collection management activities. Regular meetings provide an opportunity for members to set goals, share concerns and information about procedures and daily operations, make recommendations, and discuss the latest advances and techniques in collection management.
