The collection development policy is a guiding document that ensures consistency in collection building, facilitates thoughtful decision-making, and communicates the scope of library collection and the strategies employed by the Library in curating and developing its main circulating collection, as well as the College Archives and Special Collections, and Teacher Education Resource Center collection.
