Library Collection Development

A high-level overview of the ordering process, liaison roles, and collections policies.


The Library welcomes gifts of books and other materials that meet the collection development policy’s guidelines.  All donors agree to the Library’s unrestricted use and/or disposition of the donated materials. 

Donors arrange their own appraisals of materials, if desired, prior to the donation. The Library can provide donors a letter of acknowledgement that includes the total number of donated items, or names single titles.
