General Works Collection Policy


General serials include those addressed to a popular, non scholarly audience, news publications, and newspapers. Scholarly journals in the field of library and information science are also included in this category. Monographs, monographic series and specialized reference works may be collected as well.


To broaden accessibility, serials are sought online when this format is available. Print may be cancelled 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 general serials.
