Anticipated future trends
All works assigned to the Main Library LD3245-48M call number range shelved in the general Main Library are included. Other materials outside this range but fitting the inclusion requirements may be included. The collection will see the most anticipated growth in the addition of multiple copies of the annual yearbook and the MSU budget and salary volumes.
Relationships with other resources
1. On campus branch or format collections, if any
Duplicate items in the collection may be held in other Main library collections such as Reference, the Faculty Book collection, Maps, etc.
Other locations of duplication outside of the Main collection can include Special Collections, Remote Storage, Gast Business Library, and Morofsky Library at Gull Lake.
Items in this range LD3245-48.M will only be shelved in the designated MSU Collection area in Main unless the are in a different, specially designated collection, and not in Main with the other 'LD3245..." collection.
2. Relationships to Other Resources Treated in Other Policy Statements
Pertaining mostly to items assigned to call numbers outside the LD3245-48M range, duplicates may be shelved in the other Main general or other location as well as the MSU Collection. Such items will be evaluated as deemed by that collection's development policy statement.
Collection Development Policy for the MSU Collection was written in December, 2017, by Suzanne Teghtmeyer.
