Collection Management Issues

General interest materials, not related to research needs, are not preserved, but withdrawn when used up or outdated.

Duplicate copies not checked out in ten years may be withdrawn.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

If we assist faculty or 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.
