Sociology Collection Policy Guide

Imprint Date Considerations

The majority of materials added to the collections will be materials published in the last 3-5 years, with an emphasis on the most current titles. Older materials will be added selectively, and out-of-print materials are generally added only to replace items lost or missing from the collections, unless specific requests have been made to fill gaps in the collections.

Chronological Period Considerations

Appropriate subject-related materials treating the period of the mid-20th century to the present are emphasized, with historical works being considered selectively.
