Acquisitions    |   Collection Management

The Francis A. Drexel Library's collections are developed and managed by the librarians in partnership with the faculty of the University. A liaison system has been set up to facilitate communication between the partners; a list of the faculty and librarian liaisons is available from this site.

In response to users' requests for leisure reading, the Library subscribes to the McNaughton Collection. Under this plan, the Library "leases" current books from its vendor and exchanges non-circulating books for new releases. Both fiction, including mysteries, sci-fi, and romance novels, and non-fiction titles are selected to satisfy the wide range of interests in the University community.

The guidelines for collection development are identified in the Library's Collection Development Policy. Any questions about the policy or about the collections in general should be addressed to:
