ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine 5 writing guidelines of reference collection development policy(RCDP) and to identify major elements of RCDP through the comparison and analysis of 24 RCDP in academic libraries in the U.S. As a result of this study, a total of 9 elements(5 core elements and 4 selective elements) were identified. Five core elements were ① introduction, ② scope, size, and level, ③ format, ④ types, and ⑤ management(i.e., selection, weeding, evaluation, and responsibilities) of reference collection. The results of this study would be helpful to those academic libraries which are planning to write RCDP in academic libraries in the near future.
