Information regarding collection development at the University Library. This includes information about subject librarians, department contacts and our policy on each subject we collect.

Collection Policy for AFRICAN & AFRICAN AMERICAN STUDIES

General Purpose

The African & African American Studies Collection Development Policy Statement and its selection criteria are intended to articulate guidelines needed to build and maintain a relevant collection of consistent quality and usefulness, to clarify responsibility for building and maintaining the collection, set parameters for the scope of the collection, and to provide rationales for selection and retention decisions. This document is used by the Library's Race & Ethnic (R&E) Studies subject librarian as a planning and working tool to insure consistent and balanced growth and maintenance of the Library's African & African American Studies collection, and to aid in communicating these guidelines to the students, faculty, and staff of the Iowa State University community.
