Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Collections Policy

Howard-Tilton Memorial Library collections policies supporting the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary 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. The library does not generally collect patents, technical reports, standards or specifications. Video recordings may be purchased upon request of faculty members.

Formats

To broaden access, journals are sought online when available. Print may be canceled to reduce costs when ownership of the online version is assured and the image quality is adequate. Monographs and other materials are generally purchased as printed text, although an increasing number of books are available electronically, especially reference works such as encyclopedias and handbooks. Most scientific abstracting and indexing sources are available as online databases. The library generally avoids purchasing current indexes in print format, and has begun discarding older index volumes that are duplicated electronically.
