A collection development policy is a significant library document with an intention of building its collections based on some standards and aimed to support the vision, mission, goals and objectives of the parent institution. This paper presents the “The Development of Collection Development Policy” which is largely based from the perceived collection development practices and suggestions of its stakeholders. The survey questionnaire contains statements pertaining to the current practices on collection development of the library such as selection, acquisition, donation, weeding, preservation, loss and replacement, and copyright laws.
