The book with all the requirements has a list inside the *back* cover.
Next to each merit badge is the lastest publication date. Compare that
date with the date inside the *front* cover of each merit badge book.
We have at least one copy of all required badges and two or three of
popular ones (swimming, small boat sailing, leatherwork.) We also buy
one copy of any book a Scout needs, if he asks us to do so. Scouts are
invited to purchase a copy when they need one and donate it to the
library, but that rarely happens. About once I year, I sit down with
the librarian and we check all the publication dates. Then I buy
whatever we need.
