It also describes one approach to analyzing how well the library collection supports the various parts of the curriculum, and presents a technique to compare a library collection with peer libraries by subject majors. Finally, the "Collection Development Plan" section provides a format for stating an action plan to develop the collection based upon all of the information gathered.
