Collection Assessments

The University Libraries is in the process of evaluating its collections. Of the 56 assessments to be completed, 39 or 70% have been finished with 17 remaining evaluations.  Assessments are conducted every 5 years for each discipline unless a new degree such as a PhD or Masters Degree is being developed. In this case, a “mini” analysis is conducted to insure the library has sufficient resources to support the program change.
