Questions about collections

University Libraries consider many criteria before acquiring resources for the collections. These criteria vary depending on the nature of the materials.

General collections

The framework for the management of general collections is built using intellectual freedom and access guidelines from the American Library Association.

Our mission

The main focus for the collections is supporting the university curriculum for academic programs and the research initiatives of faculty, staff, and students. Certain units within the Libraries have specialized collection policies. University Libraries strive to include a diverse range of physical and electronic resources to serve the varied needs and interests of the campus community; inclusion of any resource does not mean that the library advocates or endorses the ideas found in that resource.
