Collection Management Issues
- Specific policies, if any, on replacement, de-selection, out-of-print acquisitions, preservation, conservation, etc.
- Multiple copies may be purchased for high-demand titles and/or titles authored by MSU faculty or staff.
- Replacement copies, if available, are usually ordered for high-circulation material or that which is important for the completeness of the collection.
- Out-of-print materials are not normally considered for purchase, unless there is sufficient demand and resources available.
