Collection Management Issues

Policies in effect for preservation, replacement, and weeding for Main Library stacks materials apply to the Environmental Science collection. Decisions about replacement are made on a case by case basis. Replacements are purchased usually only when appropriate for heavily used or high circulation items.

Multiple copies are rarely purchased unless of extreme importance or MSU faculty publications. Multiple copies of outdated monographs are usually not retained.
