Pearl A. Wanamaker (TCC) Library Collection Development Policy: Responsibility

Responsibility for collection development

Selection of library materials is a shared faculty responsibility as delegated by the Board of Trustees and the President. All faculty are encouraged to recommend materials of general interest, as well as materials relative to their areas of expertise. Student recommendations will also be considered. Faculty librarians are charged with specific responsibilities for assuring balanced development of comprehensive and timely collections in a variety of formats: (1) as resources in support of institutional priorities and curricular programs, and (2) as general informational and personal enrichment resources. Library faculty will work with instructors to encourage the selection of materials pertinent to their disciplines and appropriate for use by their students.
