Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Collections Policy

Howard-Tilton Memorial Library collections policies supporting the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at Tulane


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, except for the AIChE Symposium Series, which is part of our American Institute of Chemical Engineers subscription. The library does not generally collect theses or dissertations by authors other than Tulane students. Selected engineering standards are collected or acquired based a on researcher's request.. Videorecordings may be purchased upon request of faculty members.


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 chemical and biomolecular engineering 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.
