Collection Management Issues

A. Multiple Copies
Multiple copies of monographic titles are acquired only when there is a high demand for titles or titles authored by MSU faculty.

B. Preservation, Replacement and Weeding
Policies in effect for preservation, replacement, and weeding for the materials in the Main Library apply to the Allied Health Collection.

1.      Decisions to replace materials missing or damaged beyond repair are made on a case-by-case basis.


2.      Replacements may be purchased if available and affordable for high-demand or important monographs and for journal issues if they are not available also electronically.


3.      Multiple copies of outdated materials may be deselected, but unique materials are retained.
