Acquisitions - MAIN CONTENT

Collection Development

Library staff develops and maintains a core collection of books, journals and other materials to support the educational programs of the University of Saint Francis. Purchase decisions are based on a number of criteria, including cost, general user interest and need, program support, collection needs, etc. The collection will be evaluated regularly for quality, currency and relevancy using a variety of measures specific to subject areas. (See the Collection Development Policy for more detailed information.)

We encourage library users to make acquisition suggestions, which we always give serious consideration. For assessing materials, the Lee and Jim Vann Library provides access to Choice Reviews Online.
