It is often a difficult task to develop a Canadian studies library collection. As with any area studies collection, where the focus is on a geographic region rather than a particular discipline, a broad range of subjects typically must be covered. To add to the difficulty, Canadian materials are published in both English and French. And if the library is located in the United States, the librarian or bibliographer is faced with the inconvenience of coping with two different national currencies. The complexities inherent in Canadian studies cloud the collection development picture and obscure the appropriate direction to take. With the variety of paths that present themselves and much ground to cover, forming a conceptual road map to follow with confidence is a challenge.
