This section covers the "Woodruff Library Collection Management Policy", as well as departmental, or subject, policies; which outline our efforts in building collections to support more than 30 academic programs. View policies by subject area in this section.
The digitization program at Emory digitizes texts, manuscripts, photographic materials, flat art and AV materials to make them more usable and accessible to scholars at Emory University and the world at large, and for preservation purposes.
The Emory Libraries welcome gifts in kind from Emory students, faculty and staff and from the community. Gifts are subject to review in terms of their size, their relevance and scope - the library typically does not accept donations that are out of scope for our collections.
Preservation Office staff serves as a resource for the latest techniques and information, maintains the disaster plan for all Emory libraries, and monitors environmental conditions and lighting levels in exhibition areas in all library buildings.
