Who buys what? an update on Collection Development

With Kitty retiring from Collection Development and Perry Hartmann beginning in as a selector, I thought it would be helpful to provide you with an updated list of who purchases and maintains the different collections in our library.  This list should cover most everything but if you have a question, please ask! ~ Scarlett
