Collection Development Policy
Our goal is to provide material students need to complete their assignments, studies and explorations.
If we do not own the material or cannot provide electronic access to it, we can use document delivery, interlibrary loan or purchase it. Make suggestions about adding materials by contacting Kelly Jacobsma or completing the online form.
