Collection Development Office 1949-1986 [subgrp]

The Collection Development Office subgroup consists of Topical Files, Materials Selection Policy Committee Files, and Book Funds/Budget Files. The original alphabetic order of the series has been maintained. Many, but not all of the filing inconsistencies have been removed. Of special note are the materials which document the findings of the Library's Collection Analysis Project conducted in the early 1980s (boxes 188-189), and the run of financial records (boxes 194-195) which document the changing allocations of the book funds over a thirty-year period.
