The goal of Collection Development is to select, maintain, and preserve excellent information resources within a sustainable budget. Flexibility to shape and strengthen the collection is built into these processes as research trends shift worldwide and academic program offerings evolve at IUP. As a framework, these ongoing processes cultivate the collection and structure decision-making for specific resources.
This framework is carefully considered within budgetary, technological, and space limitations by the library faculty and administration in the context of current and future information needs of the university community.
For questions, comments, or more information about our liaison program or collection building processes, please contact Emily Szitas, collection development librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
