I am reviewing and amending the scope statement/collection development policy for our young adult non-fiction collection, and wonder if anyone would be willing to share their statements, policies, or even general philosophy about this kind of collection? For instance, one philosophy I've heard is: save research-oriented non-fiction for the adult and juvenile non-fiction collections, and use the YA non-fiction for health and wellness (sex, drugs, etc), and popular interest kinds of titles for teens.

Thanks in advance for anything you're willing to share! And...if you're sending an attached document, please include my individual email in your reply; attachments don't usually come through on my OYAN digest emails.

Thanks again -
