Collection development must follow and, whenever possible, anticipate major trends in international interest. It must also monitor curricular developments in the various colleges across campus.
International information has had an interest and been collected at the library for many years and will only continue. International Business interest has increased in recent years as the College of Business has a strong renewed interested in it.
Because it is so interdisciplinary, international cuts across most subject areas. Some of special interest are:
1. Government Documents
This collection holds much information that is useful to international interest. There is an international documents collection and Canadian documents collection in Government Documents.
While it deals with money and economics in general, it is does not cover the policy and theory of international development and the actual business usage. There is some overlap.
History is split up based on geographic area, but they are more general in focus and also concentrate on historical items.
4. Map Library
Holds some map material collected from the other areas.
