Collection Changes

As the information environment continues to evolve, the Library reviews collection decisions on an ongoing basis. Annual subscriptions are assessed in order to ensure continued relevance to the curriculum, usability, cost-effectiveness, and minimal duplication of content between sources. Additionally, new products and technologies may be incorporated as opportunities arise. The Library takes a pro-active, evidence-based approach to collection decisions and may add, change or cancel subscriptions in order to best fulfill its mandate.
