This essay for INFO266 Collection Management started with an open research prompt, with the broad requirement of focusing on an area in collection management. I took a multi-faceted approach by focusing on different approaches to assessing collections in various settings. To begin, I explore the idea that archivists require a diverse skill set in traditional library knowledge, technology, and human relations to fill user needs, which will aid in efficient selection of materials. After this, I discuss my experience with rare book acquisition for a university library. I then delve into collection management, with an example of a large photographic collection that needs to be accessioned in the Folklore Archive.

For this INFO266 Collection Management assignment, we were required to draft a collection development policy for either an existing or imaginary repository. Knowing the Folklore Archive was in need of this policy, I wrote a collection development policy for the repository where I work. After approval from the Folklore Director, I published the policy on the archive website. In the policy, I include an introduction to the repository and its collections, followed by mission, vision, and purpose statements. I then discuss administrative authority, the scope of the collection, cooperative agreements, selection criteria, collection development, collection maintenance (including preservation) and management, plus user rights and responsibilities.
