The Woodruff Library has a two tiered policy for the development and management of our library collections. There is a general policy "Woodruff Library Collection Management Policy" that has as its aim providing library staff with practical and basic guidelines for building collections. As stated in the preface "it is an outline the library's general collecting principles and processes; intended as a starting point for subject librarians who address the collection needs of specific academic disciplines." The second tier consists of a series of 25 departmental, or subject, policies; which outline our efforts in building collections to support more than 30 academic programs. Note that these collection policies were originally composed in 2007, and may not reflect up-to-date enrollment or faculty numbers.
