Collection Development Policy Statement: Medieval and Renaissance/Early Modern Studies

Collection Management Issues

Policies for management, renewal, conservation, and preservation of the medieval studies collection are those in effect for the Main Library as a whole.

Duplicate copies not checked out in ten years may be withdrawn. Materials needing binding, rebinding, repair, conservation, preservation, or relabeling may be identified during weeding projects, by the subject librarian, or when returned from circulation by the circulation staff.

If we assist faculty or graduate students in obtaining “bulk” loads of content sub-sets from our electronic resources, the Libraries would like to be considered for retention of the digital products; if we are chosen, then electronic storage space for same will need to be provided, as will appropriate staff/staff time for maintenance.
