  • Collection Development Policy
    evaluators reviewers editors contributors to standard source guides etc A collection development policy is an integral aspect of library operations and guides decision making and planning in the short and long terms Prescott College Library supports the American Library Association Bill of Rights Intellectual Freedom Statement and Policies and Freedom to Read Statement The library acquires materials that represent differing opinions and collects without censorship in regard to controversial issues We strive to comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 within our budgetary means and with College support Overview of The Collection The primary subject areas collected are those that serve to support the instruction research and public service activities of the College Most materials are organized by Library of Congress Classification Ultimate responsibility for the development and maintenance of the library collection rests with the Library Director with faculty students and staff encouraged to recommend appropriate materials for purchase All collection decisions are subject to the constraints of the library s budget and follow the guidelines outlined in the Collection Development Policy The following formats are collected Books monographs Acquired with first priority given in support of the curriculum Paperbacks are acquired when hard copies are unavailable or of a cost as to make the purchase of a paperback copy justified Consideration is given to expected use lasting value and content Sets are acquired by the library in support of the curriculum based on availability of funds and in comparison to the individual holdings already in the library Technical manuals are acquired on a highly selective basis with consideration to use timeliness and maintenance Ebooks Serials Acquired with first priority given in support of the major areas of the college curriculum Indexed serials are given the highest priority Both print and electronic formats are included Newspapers Acquired on a highly selective basis The goal is to include major U S newspapers representing regions of the country state and local newspapers English language newspapers are given priority Textbooks The Library acquires books to support undergraduate and graduate research in the curriculum areas Textbooks are not intentionally acquired While textbooks may sometimes be available in the Library because of donations or faculty requests students should plan to purchase them from the Bookstore or another source Dissertations Theses The library acquires copies of dissertations and theses completed at the College Others are selected and acquired with strong recommendation from the faculty Maps Maps atlases globes and charts are purchased selectively Most of the College s maps are housed in the map room of the San Juan building Pamphlets and Broadsides Acquired on a selective basis in support of curriculum Audio Visual Materials Sound recordings video recordings nonprint and multimedia are acquired with priority given to curriculum support Computer Software Computer software is acquired selectively by the library for the College and is available on the campus network Curricular needs faculty requests production availability of equipment facilities and technical support are considered in selection It must be ensured that the advantages of a digital resource are significant enough to justify its selection in digital forms Web Page Development of our Prescott College Library web page conforms to all standards described in our collection development policy relating to quality relevancy to curriculum and currency General Considerations The goal of the library collection at Prescott College should be quality not necessarily quantity For the purposes of collection development this means that the materials ordered should be relevant and appropriate in quantity to each discipline taught to the level at which it is taught and to the number of faculty and students that use it The library should collect the highest possible percentage of materials likely to be used by those working within the College s current and anticipated academic program Currency Emphasis should be placed on the collection of current materials but not to the exclusion of acquiring materials of historical interest pertinent to the curriculum filling in older materials in new areas of emphasis in the curriculum or obtaining materials that may have been overlooked or not purchased because of personal biases of staff or lack of funds in the past Completeness While it is desirable to have complete works of authors it is not advisable to seek completeness for its own sake especially when many works are available in electronic formats or available at other local libraries Cooperative Development All collection management decisions will be made in the context of cooperation with the Yavapai Library Network consortium The goal is to build complementary collections to expand the resources available to everyone in our library community Preservation We must take all possible measures to preserve the materials we need to have available for use especially those that are packed and taken on field courses Censorship The Library Bill of Rights statement of the American Library Association is considered part of the College s Collection Development Policy We will follow guidelines in ALA s Intellectual Freedom Manual when responding to censorship accusations Collection Maintenance Collection analysis consists of examining and describing the existing collection so as to understand what now exists and how it is used The library assesses the usefulness relevance and physical condition of its collection on a continuing basis beginning with a yearly inventory and evaluation process Weeding withdrawal and disposal of out of date and inaccurate material is a difficult yet essential element of collection development Many criteria go into deciding whether or not to keep particular books in the collection but the bottom line is that per the mission statement of the College we want to provide the best materials possible for our community and to do so we must continually review evaluate weed and update Some criteria to consider Misleading and or factually inaccurate information Worn out beyond mending or rebinding Superceded by a newer edition or better source Trivial of no discernable merit to the collection Irrelevant to the needs and interests of the community May be easily located elsewhere in the community Condition will fall
