The process of building the collections of books, non-book material, and electronic resources for the James P. Adams Library is described in its newly revised Collection Development Policy and Collection Development Policy for Special Collections. Included are procedures for both selection and de-selection of materials, examination of methods of acquisition, options for preservation, and evaluation of the collection to determine how well it serves user needs.
The Library welcomes requests for the purchase of new materials including books, journals, CDs, DVDs, electronic and non-print items that support the curriculum. Items selected for purchase will be ordered when funds are available.
- Please check the HELIN catalog to see if the item is currently available in HELIN before submitting your request.
- Please use the online request form or contact your Library Liaison to request materials to be added to the library's collections.
- Requests for journal subscriptions should be directed to Judith Stokes in the Periodicals Department .
- All purchases are made in accordance with the James P. Adams Library Collection Development Policy.
