Materials sought for the colletions include monographs, books in series, periodicals, bibliographic and other reference works, conference proceedings, museum publications, departmental publications, and site reports. Media, maps, anthologies, textbooks and dissertations are selectively sought, usually upon faculty recommendation. Collections of previously published material are acquired only if other access is problematic.


Monographs and other types are usually purchased in traditional print formats, but microformats are often acceptable as a substitute, particularly for large collections not otherwise available.
To broaden accessibility, journals are sought online when this format is available. Print copies may be cancelled if necessary to reduce costs, but only when ownership of the electronic version in contractually assured. Online access that requires additional costs with a print subscription will be sought selectively.
Audio and video formats are sought upon faculty request.
