Himmelfarb Health Sciences Library developed a worksheet to aid in making collection development decisions for the George Washington University Medical Center. This worksheet would enable the library to give priority to departments with less journal coverage. By conducting departmental surveys, the library was able to prioritize purchases regarding the journal collection. This poster presentation explains the development, results, and benefits of the worksheet, which was created in Microsoft Excel.
