Collection Development Policy
This Collection Development Policy establishes minimum selection standards and criteria for evaluating additions to the collection, for assessing the existing collection, and for establishing links to websites in support of the curriculum.
The goal of this policy statement is to inform the University community, including faculty, students, and staff, of these standards, and to provide guidance for librarians serving as collection liaisons.
This policy is flexible so that it can respond to the long and short range objectives of the University, and to changes that may take place within it. The Libraries/IDS will respond to these changes by reviewing this policy annually prior to the beginning of the fall academic term.
