J Reference for Student Place MOSEs

RSC discussed the needs for reference collections in libraries focused on serving elementary through high school students.  We learned from Collection Development that we are buying fewer copies of circulating non-fiction in print because it tends not to get checked out with the exception of career, animal, and science information.  These are the three areas that the RSC also feels should be developed in a Student Place print reference collection.  In addition the circulating collections of a Student Place might be developed with career, animal, science, states & countries, health & medical, and 100 page biographies.  It was discussed that most students want information that they can take with them by checking out, making copies, or accessing online.  It appears that students are placing less and less demand for in library use only materials.
