Cooperative Collection Development
The Cooperative Collection Development Service will coordinate the acquisition of and build upon an already existing collection of materials (books, periodicals, CDs, videos, etc.). It will be housed in the school library, which meets the Oneida/Herkimer School Library System Cooperative Collection Development Plan criteria.The function of the school library collection is to support instruction and meet the informational needs of staff and students. Adequacy of school library funding and changes in curriculum content and course emphasis make development of in-depth library collections difficult for individual schools. This service will allow schools to build exemplary library collections and make these resources available to other schools through Interlibrary Loan.
