I would build in enough personnel to do targeted collection development.
What this means to me is someone whose job it is to regularly check the
collection for subject specific deficiencies, work with faculty in those
disciplines to suggest/identify materials intended to expressly meet the
needs of the curriculum.

Also, I'd build $$ into the annual budget, separate from acquisitions, to
pay for digital licensing of any materials purchased to allow us to
"stream" the programs over the campus network, rather than a physical
check-out/delivery of media materials.
