INTRODUCTION

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering


The global changes particularly the Information and Communication
Technologies (ICT) have impact on the functioning of academic libraries. The
developments in ICT have changed the users’ expectation from the academic
libraries in different ways. The ways to build collection and services to the
end users vary from the recent past practices. To meet the end-users
demands effectively, the academic libraries need to identify and adopt good
practices and benchmarks. Thus, preparing guidelines in a standardized way
based on the best practices employed by libraries is significant which will
ultimately enhance the value based services of academic libraries.
Library and Information Services of Higher Education institutions play
a central role in enhancing the quality of academic and research
environment. The Northwest Samar State University (NwSSU) strive for
quality and excellence and advocates for enhancing the role of Library and
Information Services in improving academic environment. Library is the
fulcrum of support for the entire range of academic activities on an
educational campus. In today’s high-tech learning environment, the library
as a learning resource is taking up increasingly more academic space and
time in the life of a learner. In times ahead, this will be even more so. Thus
NwSSU has decided to identify the set of best practices in Library &
Information Services, with the help of a few case presentations from few
selected libraries of the accredited universities and colleges. In general, the
use of technology and innovative ideas lead to evolve best practices in
library and information environment. Collaborative learning is now the trend
in the library.
The NwSSU library although wants to be at par with the other libraries,
it still needs to address some issues that hinder the implementation of
collaborative learning. One of which is the space. No matter how much the
library wants to cater to collaborative learning, through provision of
“information commons”, it is but a sad truth that the library lacks the space
it needs for such innovation. Time will come that these innovations will
become a reality in the NwSSU library. Thus, the library renovation is one of
the highlights of the present administration. However, despite some
problems encountered, the library makes sure that library services are
designed to facilitate independent and optimum use of all library collections.
Students, faculty, alumni and other users coming from other institutions can
avail of these collections.

PARAMETER C – COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT, ORGANIZATION AND


PRESERVATION

1. SYSTEM – INPUT AND PROCESSES

The Institution’s Collection Development Policy

COLLECTION DEVELOPMENT POLICY

INTRODUCTION

Collection development is the process of assessing the strength


and weaknesses in a collection, and then creating a plan to correct the
weaknesses and maintain the strength. The written statement of the plan is
in the Collection Development Policy.

Collection Development

The library management program and collection development


contribute to the achievement of goals, that is, organizing and directing the
processes of acquiring or providing access to materials and data and
integrate them into coherent and supportive collection.

Selection and Acquisition Statement

1. The library should have materials and facilities, which in terms of


quality and quantity are reasonably adequate for effective research.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering


2. The Depth and breadth of coverage, representativeness of authority
in various disciplines, extent of correlative, and recency of edition
are essentials in such development.

3. It should respond to the changing needs of undergraduate and


graduate studies and research as well as to the changes in national
and institutional policy.

4. Each curricular offering shall have the appropriate corresponding


library support in terms of books in proportion to the required
number of volumes.

5. In addition to books, the library resources should include


appropriate professional publication, such as journals,
bibliographical annuals, serials, and bound issues of reputable
professional and cultural magazines of foreign and local
publications.

6. The Library Advisory Committee shall determine the books to be


purchased.

7. The teaching staff shall be notified through the deans of the plan to
purchase library materials and shall be asked to submit their
suggested references.

8. The list of books and other materials of recent edition shall be


submitted to the librarian after consulting the book catalogs and
price lists.

9. The librarian shall check the previous list to avoid duplication.

10. Purchasing procedure shall be allowed.

11. Book donations shall be solicited from different agencies every


semester.

12. There is a yearly inventory of library materials during summer


vacation. After the said activity, the librarian separates the obsolete
and worn out books to be recommended for condemnation in
coordination with the supply officer and the inventory committee.

Budget Administration

The library continuously upgrades its facilities as it expands its


acquisition of new materials. Maximum use of the library materials and
satisfactory services for students, faculty and other clientele depend on a
large measure in having the resources of the library accessible. It is
therefore desired to undertake development program to upgrade its
resources.

Source of Funds

1. The library is mainly funded by the students’ library fees and the
university.

2. The library seeks and accepts outside sources of funds to increase


collection subject to government rules and regulations.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering


Organization of Library Materials

In order to facilitate easy access to library materials, especially newly


acquired resources, the library observes the following standards:

 Collating
 Marking
 Cataloging
 Classifying
 Accessioning
 Printing
 Recording and indexing
 Updating clippings for vertical collections
 Disseminating information regarding the availability of new
collection
 Technical and mechanical processing of library materials
 Close access – reserve area (textbooks, handbooks, and other in
demand books). Students shall not be admitted inside this area,
instead they shall ask the library assistant for the books they need.
 Open access – Students are free to browse and get the book they
choose. They are not allowed to do the shelving. Used books are to
be left on the table or book rack.

Preservation and Conservation

It is important to protect the assets represented by the library’s


collections through preservation, which is programmed. This begins with
attempts to maintain an environment, which is clean and secure, with proper
lighting, heat, humidity control and proper ventilation.

To explore the possibility of finding methods of restoring or preserving


books, the library adopted simple mending and repair of books. Complete
issues for one-year magazine/journals are book bound.

Weeding

Weeding constitutes the removal of outdated, superseded, damaged or


duplicated material from the collections. It is a systematic removal of non-
core volumes from primary collections of the library. It is also detracting
non-essential materials from the library shelves in order to maximize the use
of the resources.

Purpose:

1. To evaluate the collections in conjunction with the selection of new


and replace of old materials in order to keep the collection viable
and useful.

2. To delete unnecessary, out-of-date materials from the shelves.

3. To alert faculty and librarians to areas of weakness in the collection.

4. To identify working edition which are in need of replacement,


binding, or repair.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering


Guidelines:

To keep the circulation functional and current, the library will withdraw
obsolescence, damage, unneeded materials from its shelves. Evaluation of
the collections shall be the joint responsibility of the librarians and LAC
through removal of materials from the collections based on the following
guidelines:

1. Physical condition beyond repair – to be replaced if they meet


selection criteria that are available.

2. To be rebound if valuable and possible, or kept protected if valuable


and still useful.

3. Excess number of duplicate copies (donated books)

a. When deemed no longer needed for the academic program

b. Exceptions include popular work and literatures which are in


demand may fluctuate.

c. Superseded editions

d. A “next to last” edition may kept depending on subject, length


of time between editions, circulation, or extent of revision.

e. Those materials which are cumulated in a newer edition.

Inventory

Inventory is conducted by the end of the school year. It involves a


series of the following activities:

1. Books are checked physically against the library records like


accession record and shelflist file.

2. If the item is missing, a marker is placed in the shelflist card.

3. If the item is located, marker is removed in the subject list.

4. The missing item and other source are classified carefully.

5. List of missing materials is prepared.

6. Relief of accountability accompanied by affidavit of loss is


requested.

7. The lost item is removed from inventory list, the shelf list card is
removed from the shelf list file, catalog cards from the card catalog
will be removed. The entry in the OPAC will be deleted and marked
as lost, and “lost” will be written in the remarks columns of the
accession record.

Types of Access

1. Close Access

Students shall not be admitted inside this area, instead they


shall ask the library assistant for the books they need. This area is also

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering


known as the Reserve Area (textbooks, handbooks, and other in
demand books).

2. Open Access

Students are free to browse and get the book they choose. They
are not allowed to do the shelving. Used books are to be left on the
table or book rack.

(Excerpts from the Proposed Library Manual, pages 12-43)

Resolution number 21 series of 2015 approving the


University Library Manual

2. IMPLEMENTATION

There is a written collection development policy which is incorporated


in the Library Manual. The Library Advisory Committee helps in the creation
of the policy, review of the policy, and the evaluation which is done
regularly.

The library increases its collection of books and other information


sources like electronic resources, journals, serials, thesis and dissertation.
Every year, there are significant increase in the Filipiniana, professional and
reference books of the collection.

Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering


The library materials are organized using the Dewey Decimal
Classification System Scheme. The University sustainably adopts a
computerized Integrated Library System that facilitates the organization of
the library resources. This system, Follette with OPAC terminals and
circulation system as an added features of the system.

Every end of the semester, an inventory of the library holdings is


conducted. This regular inventory period also serves as the venue for the
general care and upkeep of the library resources. Books with destroyed
spine and equipment are also sent for repair. Outdated and totally damaged
books are pulled out from the collection.
