    Abstract:
    This essay asks how the processes and concepts of collection development and collection management in 2020 was unrecognisable from those used in the late 1990s, with a focus on prison libraries in England and Wales. Governmental, international and local authority guidelines and policy frameworks are analysed, as these are the most reliable and detailed sources available on collection development and management in this particular sector of LIS. The key developments and the impacts of changes in prison libraries over a 20 year period from 1999 to 2019 are examined, with a summary on what we might expect to see in prison library collection policies in the future.
