    Collection Development

    Purchasing books and journals for the library is one of the responsibilities of the subject specialists. Forward purchase suggestions to the appropriate subject librarians for consideration.

    Each year, the library allocates money for book acquisitions and journal subscriptions. Book acquisitions are shared among disciplines and purchase suggestions are especially sought from faculty and department library representatives. 

    Journal subscriptions are largely purchased online from vendors, professional societies, and individual publishers. Because our library collections budget has not increased, but inflation rates annually increase, librarians are constantly making sure that access is adequate but within our means. We are willing to receive suggestions for new journals subscriptions if existing individual subscriptions that no longer reflect research interests can be cancelled. Contact your subject specialist (listed in the center column) for more information.
