Developing a new library collection

Collection Development plan: Winter Sports

This is a fictional new collection I developed on the subject of Winter Sports (yes, the topics were assigned). My given budget was $1200 CDN, and it was supposed to be for a public library. We had to describe the library and the community, and plan a brand new subject-specific collection for their needs, choosing suitable and available items, sticking to the given budget, selecting the various desired media, planning for future weeding, developing the collections policy, etc.

I never thought it would be so hard to spend money on books!
