Part II: Expanding and Deepening the Collection

Part II: Expanding and Deepening
the Collection

This collection supplements the items presented in Part I of the guide. It is intended for libraries serving communities that have demonstrated greater demand and interest in personal finance topics. This more in-depth collection assumes a greater budget commitment from libraries (especially for databases), and may require additional content expertise from library staff to ensure that patrons can take full advantage of the resources. The collection serves patrons seeking more specialized information, in addition to those with routine, general needs.
