What is collection development?
Library collection development is the process of building the library materials to meet the information needs of the users (a service population) in a timely and economical manner using information resources locally held, as well as from other organizations. According to the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA), acquisition and collection development focuses on methodological and topical themes pertaining to the acquisition of print and other analog library materials (by purchase, exchange, gift, legal deposit), and the licensing and purchase of electronic information resources.

What are the reasons the U.S. entered the Korean War?
In June 1950 communist North Korea invaded South Korea. The United States came to the aid of South Korea at the head of a United Nations force composed of more than a dozen countries. Communist China joined North Korea in the war in November 1950, unleashing a massive Chinese ground attack against American forces. The Soviet Union also covertly supported North Korea. After three years of fighting, the war ended in a stalemate with the border between North and South Korea near where it had been at the war’s beginning. This was the first hot war of the Cold War, and in it the United States demonstrated its continued commitment to containment (the idea that the US would ultimately defeat communism by containing its spread).
