Library Collections Policy

The Library’s primary task is to collect, maintain, promote and provide access to relevant and representative information resources which serve the Library users and support their research, learning and teaching.

This collections policy is a statement of a framework and set of parameters within which library staff and users work. The primary function of the collection management policy is to provide guidance to all staff when selecting and deselecting resources for the collection. The document serves as a guideline for each stage of materials handling and also provides a sound foundation for further collection development.
