Chemistry Collections Policy

Howard-Tilton Memorial Library collections policies supporting the Department of Chemistry at Tulane

Acquisitions Sources

Limited numbers of books are automatically delivered to the library through an approval plan from YBP. Most other books are purchased individually and also through YBP at a discount rate.

Selection Tools

Reviews such as those from Choice, from scientific journals, and recommendations from faculty, staff, and students are all sources of possible additions to the collection. The yearly Buyers Guide, available from the Journal of Chemical Education, is considered for titles in chemistry and related areas. Book forms automatically delivered to the library through the YBP Plan are also scanned for possible purchase

Endowed Funds

The deMilt Fund is available for materials in the history of chemistry, including materials in the history of chemical engineering. The Class of 1902 Fund may be used for books in any area of science. Each year the Ann Hero Northrup Prize honors an outstanding undergraduate woman chemistry student by purchasing materials for the library in her name
