The selectors prepare individual collection development policies to aid communication between librarians and the Dartmouth College community to: illuminate collections decisions; assist in determining and documenting budget needs; and to facilitate “collective collecting” and resource sharing. These policies provide a statement of purpose for and an overview of the present collection in a particular academic subject or a collecting area as well as a description of the research and study programs the collection supports.
The collection development policies are a subset of the Dartmouth College Library Collection Management Policy.
Please contact the current selector(s) listed at the end of the policy if you have questions or comments.
