This paper proposes describing the collection assessment process adapted to fit the integrated government documents collection at Jacksonville State University's Houston Cole Library.
This paper is based on the Library's experience conducting an assessment of its integrated government documents collection using an adaptation of the WLN conspectus method.
The author describes the adaptations made, obstacles overcome, results of the assessment, and conclusions drawn from it.
As a result of this assessment, procedures were established for future assessments of the collection, and the results of the assessment were used to aid in the selection process.
This paper provides a model for conducting an assessment of an integrated government documents collection that other libraries can follow and fills a gap in the literature of government documents collection management.
