Cell & Molecular Biology Collections Policy

Howard-Tilton Memorial Library collections policies supporting the Department of Cell and Molecular Biology at Tulane

Types

The library collects monographs, monographic series, reference books, and periodicals, with the main focus being the journal collection. Textbooks used in current courses are not acquired. Symposium and colloquium proceedings are bought upon request. Video recordings may be purchased upon request of faculty members.

Formats

To broaden accessibility, journals 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 cell and molecular biology journals. E-books, either individually or in packages are considered, especially when that format would improve access or utility. Most scientific abstracting and indexing sources are available as databases searchable online. The library rarely maintains a subscription to both the print and the online version of an index.
