The responsibility for collection development at the Clark State Library
is shared by the faculty and the Library staff. The Library staff tries
to acquire curriculum-related materials* suggested by faculty members
while balancing various departmental needs, strengths and weaknesses of
the collection, and keeping within budgetary limits. The availability
of the item through OhioLINK online borrowing is also considered.
and donations are gratefully accepted with the following provisos:
Materials will be deselected, weeded, etc., when they are sufficiently
out of date so as to impart incorrect information which could be harmful
or dangerous. This is particularly true in law and medical subject areas.
Poor condition, lack of use and general irrelevance to the curriculum
would also constitute reasons for deselection.
*Material is defined as anything in print/hard copy, audiovisuals, online
resources, microform, etc. Check with the appropriate Library staff member
on the procedure for making purchase recommendation.
