This study investigates the effects of electronic information sources on collection development in 15 academic libraries, primarily in the Midwest. A search of the literature and conference presentations also contributed to the findings. Areas studied included the materials budget, collection development policies, and licenses; identifying, evaluating, selecting, and developing the electronic sources collection; training subject specialists to use electronic resource tools; classifying electronic materials; and the changes in the role of the collection development librarian.
