Collection Development Policy: Electronic Resources


Collection Development Policy



  1. Electronic resources are frequently acquired through package deals negotiated as consortial purchases. Decisions on which packages to participate in will be based on whether they generally conform to this policy.
  2. The library does not acquire duplicate items in multiple formats, e.g. print and electronic, except in special circumstances. When a subscription is selected for acquisition as an electronic format, subscriptions for that title in hard-copy format will be cancelled.
