Abstract: In this paper the author examines the current landscape of, and the factors confronting, academic library collection development with particular reference to Asia, Australasia and the United States. The author discusses the reemergence of collection development disciplines in coping with digital content and reviews methods of using and adapting these methods to achieve the stated goals of academic libraries. The author also discusses the changing role and evolution of commercial vendors and how academic libraries and consortia can position themselves to both influence and take advantage of supplier services. Examples include profiling methodologies for digital content, print-on-demand and repositories of metadata.
