The travel collection will serve as an information and planning resource for both the University population and the public, via MelCat and inter-library loan. A secondary function for the collection is to serve the research needs of the MSU campus. This applies particularly to older, historical material.
Materials will be purchased primarily in the English language, with some exceptions where the only materials are available in English or when specialist guides for international populations at MSU are appropriate.
Review of this collection will be an ongoing process.
