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 right of intellectual freedom applies without exception to all library resources to which the Library provides access. The sole test of a controversial item will be its contribution, direct or indirect, to the academic program of the College and the informational needs of students.
The Library adheres to the principles of the American Library Association's Library Bill of Rights and the Freedom to Read Statement, a joint statement by the American Library Association and the Association of American Publishers.
