Summary Effective collection management is no longer just about having the "best" collection. As education shifts to a learner-centered environment, collection development must address the dynamic interplay between all stakeholders in the wider school community. Drawing from the latest educational theory and research, Hughes-Hassell and Mancall recommend a plan to build and maintain a solid collection in the midst of radical flux, while meeting students' information needs in a holistic context. Connecting to the guidelines of information power, this ground-breaking guide will help youth librarians: Develop and manage collections that meet the changing needs of learners; Address a dynamic educational process and ever-changing resource base; Become an informed teacher and information guide; Tap into the school's broadest learning community to build partnerships.
