Subject Policies

The following collection development policies were written by Subject Librarians and include a statement on the purpose and scope of the collection well as a listing of specific subjects with assigned collecting levels.

A major effort is currently underway by the Subject Librarians to review and revise older subject policies to reflect new programs and/or publishing trends. All policies revised since 2000 are posted to this site. Until all policies are revised, a brief summary of collection interests and needs for each academic department has been provided. Click here for those summaries.

If you have questions, please contact the  appropriate Subject Librarian or contact the Coordinator of Collection Development.
