POLICY FOR COLLECTION EXPENDITURE MAINTENANCE
The purpose of the Arrowhead Library System Library Collection Expenditure Maintenance Policy is to insure that each member library of the system maintains a budgeted amount for library materials in the library’s annual budget. Each library’s annual expenditure for library materials will be equal to the average of the last three full years of library materials expenditures. The first year of the agreement, expenditures for materials will be based on the average of the 2004/2005/2006 expenditures in each library. The annual report of the library will be used to determine the three-year average expenditure.
Each library within the ALS shared automation system will develop and update a collection development policy for use by the library.
