    The second edition features two new chapters on digital curation and cooperative collection development. Materials in a variety of formats including, print, electronic, and audio-visual. As with most theories, including those in the management area, there are a number of critics who have challenged these methods over time. Packed with selection resources and sample core lists in seven subject areas, this soup-to-nuts manual will be useful whether you are starting from scratch or revitalizing an existing collection. The areas of greatest strength are on French, Italian, Dutch and Flemish, English, and German art, with selected holdings on Eastern European and American art; the primary focus is medieval to 20th century.

The head librarian will convene a review committee composed of the library administrator, head librarian, and librarian or teaching faculty member. Languages and Translations a.
