The members of the Curriculum Materials Committee of the Education and Behavioral Sciences Section of ACRL see increasing importance in identifying the processes by which curriculum collections and services in academic institutions might be fostered, maintained, and enhanced at levels appropriate to the programs that serve to prepare and educate teachers at a given institution. Furthermore, the committee recognizes that educational trends, budget allocations, resource and facilities management, and ubiquitous technology continue to influence the growing need for planning, organization, and implementation of quality collection development policies for curriculum collections.
