Library Collections

The library collection contains physical and online resources to support the academic research needs of the students and promoting scholarship. The library strives to provide access to materials that represent our student population's unique experiences and voices. We welcome active participation of faculty in recommending items to add to the collection that support their courses. Library resources are available in the physical collection and through online resources. For more information about the physical collections and online resources, visit the Library Collections page.

Collection Development Guidelines
