The second edition includes expanded information on collection metrics, digital collections, and practical advice for managing collections efficiently when time and resources are tight. It also includes more real-life examples from practicing librarians in areas such as workflow analysis, collection budgets, and collection management techniques. Chapters cover the life cycle of a collection, understanding workflow and collecting metrics. Physical inventory, collection objectives and bookmarks, as well as collection organization, collection budgets and marketing collections are also discussed.
