Collection Development Policy

Formats

The library collects a broad spectrum of information resources in a range of formats. Formats include but are not limited to print, e-book, CDs, DVDs, and streaming video. Format preferences and requests will be considered in selection decisions.

The library normally purchases only one copy of a title but may provide both physical and electronic access in certain circumstances. If the item is already owned, the library may consider purchasing a duplicate in another format if it provides improved access; space, maintenance, cost, and processing benefits; and/or ease of use in comparison to the equivalent in the format already owned.
