Abstract

 

The paper examined some basic concepts, objectives and theoretical framework of collection development. It highlighted various strategies by which collection development and management can be actualized and utilized. Challenges affecting effective management and utilization of information services were also considered. The paper made some recommendations such as materials resources should be ordered for library without waiting for accreditation exercise before embarking on acquisitions; Education Trust Fund (ETF) for book intervention should not be divested and should be timely accessed; and librarians in the institutions of higher learning should insist on having a written and functional policy to collection development of information resources. It was also recommended that librarians in the institutions of higher learning should be encouraged to attend professional programmes such as seminars, workshops, and conferences to increase their knowledge on collection development and management towards information resources delivery. Equally, it was also recommended that proper keeping of statistical data of librarians and students will enhance the management of information resources. The preservation and conservation of library resources were discussed and the summary of the study were also provided.

Keywords: Strategic, Management, Collection Development, Collection Management and Information Services.
