Collection Management Issues

Specific policies, if any, on replacement, de-selection, out of print acquisitions, preservation, etc.

Multiple copies may be purchased for high demand titles and/or titles authored by MSU faculty.

Replacement copies, if available, are usually ordered for high circulation material or that which is important to the completeness of the collection.

Out-of-print materials may be considered for purchase when there is a compelling need for a unique item that has been officially classified as missing or damaged beyond repair.

Preservation decisions follow the general guidelines established by the Main Library.
