Abstract: Collection development is the process of identifying the strength and weakness of the collections of library materials in terms of patron needs and community resources and attempting to correct existing weakness, if any. One has to cross many hurdles created by IT for developing the collection. A well framed Collection Development Policy (CDP) is of great help in guiding all these activities. The authors have described the means of use of Internet and Push Technology facilities for an effective collection development in the libraries by mentioning different search engines and URLs. Advantages and disadvantages of Internet and Push Technology are provided. Internet can be used for identifying different sources of information, can also be used from ordering to collection of information. Lists of selected Library and Information Science journals and different reference sources available on Net are appended.
