Collection Development

The library invites faculty members, Instructional Academic Staff, and all library users to recommend materials for the library collection.  Please forward all requests to the Director.

 We adhere to the principles expressed in the Collection Development Policy of the UW Colleges.  Our top priority is to provide materials that directly support the freshman/sophomore instructional program.   All formats are welcome. 

 A collection that supports teaching and learning must be regularly reviewed for its currency, relevancy, and quality. Faculty expertise is a valuable resource when the library considers materials for deselection, or weeding.  Please contact Peggy Turnbull if you notice dated, outmoded, or discredited materials or materials in poor condition in your field of specialty.
