Collection Management for Faculty

Faculty members are strongly encouraged to work with the library to identify resources to support the curriculum.

Collection Management Practices

These collection management practices are intended to reflect the mission of STC Library Services to provide a learning-centered environment, rich in quality information resources and outstanding services to meet the research, instructional and learning needs of the STC students, faculty, staff and community. These practices also serve to guide staff in the selection and retention of materials and to inform our Library users of the principles supporting selection, retention, and collection management decisions.
