The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the acquisition policy of the City and University Library Osijek and to examine the process of development of library collections in the existing conditions, based on the results collected by a survey of the Library users. By evaluating the success of the collection development, it is possible to evaluate whether the collection fulfills the library tasks, how it responds to the needs of users, what are its weaknesses and what should be changed in order to improve current practice. The analysis of the survey determines the user satisfaction with the available collections, user habits and information needs, but also the justification of the current purchasing policy. The analysis shows the extent to which domestic and foreign literature is borrowed, which genres are most and which are least read, which are read by younger users and which by older ones, and through which platforms and sources they all come to information about book titles.
The presented data provided expert assumptions that will ensure better communication with users in the context of purchasing books and other materials, satisfying users interests and wishes, and the availability and sufficiency of the titles they are interested in.
