  3. 3. Evaluate your CD Policies ● How well does the policy address criteria listed in Gregory textbook? Assess the strengths and weaknesses of the policy. ● Is there a mission for the policy? ● How well does the policy address the library mission and user needs? If it does not do this well, what suggestions would you make for amending the policy? ● How flexible is the policy? How often would it need revision? ● What changes would you suggest to make this policy more focused on ways the library supports users and their needs? How can it be less library-focused? ● How might you use a design-thinking approach to revising how libraries approach creating collection policies?

For the group’s institution type, which aspects make the most sense for inclusion and why? ● What seems to be ● outdated in CD policies? What needs rethinking? Consider how CD policies are normally written and consider your library’s mission and how it is to serve its community. How could the nature of the CD policy be rethought?
