Gender and Sexuality Studies Collection Policy Guide

Collection development policy for Gender and Sexuality Studies


Monographs, monographic series, reference works, conference proceedings, and anthologies are regularly sought. Media (including software, audio, and visual items) are selectively sought. Dissertations, and manuscripts are sought only upon faculty request. Collections of previously published material are sought in those cases where other access to the materials is problematic. 


To broaden accessibility, journals are sought online when this format is available. Print may be canceled to reduce costs when ownership of the online version is assured. Online access that requires additional costs with a print subscription will be sought selectively within the amount budgeted for journals. Monographs and other types are generally purchased as printed text. Other formats are considered, especially when the alternative format would improve access or utility.
