Collection Development & Management Committee
The CDMC is responsible for developing recommendations to Council regarding cooperative collection development and management. CMDC is expected to establish committee goals and develop recommendations that aid the development and use of member library collections as a unified collection. The scope of work includes policies and projects governing the development of physical and digital collections. Although the Committee is granted wide latitude in its development of recommendations, Council is particularly interested in creating projects that have a significant and tangible impact on collections and access to library materials. Where appropriate, projects can be designed to begin among a subset of members with an option to scale up quickly.
The CDMC is a standing committee that operates with a Steering Team and a member representative from each institution.
Committee members represent an entire member institution. Thus each representative is expected to gather input from all relevant divisions, branches, autonomous libraries, etc. and speak for the member institution.
