Collection Development

The library invites faculty members, instructional academic staff, and all library users to recommend materials for the library collection. Please forward all requests to the Director.

We adhere to the principles expressed in the UW Colleges Collection Development Policy. Our top priority is to provide materials that directly support the freshman/sophomore instructional program.

A collection that supports teaching and learning must be regularly reviewed for its currency, relevancy, and quality. Faculty expertise is a valuable resource when the library considers materials for de-selection, or weeding.  Please contact Renee Wallin or Dave Dettman if you notice dated, outmoded, or discredited materials or materials in poor condition in your field of specialty.
