Abstract

Public libraries need to be more creative and innovative with their collection development. It's important to consider how the information is delivered and what has the potential of being accessed on a given device. Collection development in public libraries is about more than just acquiring new materials for patrons to use. It is about the connection that libraries provide between people and resources, whether they be physical or digital. This study discussed the improvement of library collections based on user demand and user interest, that is those who need information are like house wives, businessmen, employed people, unemployed people, retired people and children. Collection development policy includes that fulfilment of present and future needs of the user community in the public libraries. Collection development deals with the procurement, collection development of antiquate materials, conventional documents and Non-Book materials for the users.
