Mathematics Collection Policy


Monographs, monographic series, conference proceedings, reference books, and serials are the primary types of materials selected. Dissertations and theses by authors other than Tulane students are not usually sought. Course materials, videorecordings, and software are considered selectively. The Howard-Tilton Memorial Library selectively purchases materials for undergraduate mathematics and popular mathematics. 


Because of space considerations and to broaden accessibility, journals are sought online when this format is available. Print versions may be cancelled with departmental approval when ownership of the online version is assured and the image quality is adequate. Online access that requires additional costs with a print subscription will be sought selectively within budget limitations. Monographs are usually purchased in printed text format, although other formats are selectively considered when the alternative format would improve access or utility. Course materials, videos, and software are considered selectively.
