  20. 20. Collection Trends
  21. 21. Where is this leading • Inexorable movement toward digital/electronic resources accounting for most research collection acquisition expenditures • Distinctiveness will include the depth and breadth of digital collections and supporting services, such as data management and digital humanities. • Scanning services and digitization will be key services for accessing legacy print collections. • Collective collection development and management as part of multiple networks (Ivy Plus, HathiTrust, CRL, DPLA and others)
  22. 22. Service as a guiding principle Collection Development Philosophy The Yale University Library collects, organizes, preserves and provides access to a rich and unique record of human thought and creativity in a variety of formats, in support of the teaching, research and public missions of the university. ...all collection development work is clearly aligned with the strategic goals and priorities of Yale University.
