Building by Benchmarking: A Method of Creating and Evaluating an Asian American Studies Collection - PREPUBLICATION VERSION Public

This article examines the methodology undertaken while investigating whether the existing collections in Asian American Studies at The Pennsylvania State University Libraries could support a new academic program. Presently active academic subareas in the field of Asian American Studies were determined. Then existing collections of thirteen “benchmark” universities were examined according to these subareas and compared to the holdings of Pennsylvania State University Libraries. This method can not only evaluate the fitness of existing collections to new academic demands but also serve as a tool for collection development by identifying present and future areas of academic study.
