Wayne G. Basler Library Policy and Procedures

Periodicals Selection

Due to their unique nature, periodicals require a long-term commitment by the Wayne G. Basler Library.  Periodicals must be purchased every year, require continuous processing, and increase steadily in price. Selection of periodicals, therefore, is a major decision and each title must be carefully evaluated using thoughtful selection criteria.  Curriculum requirements and usage must all be considered.

For detailed policies and procedures on periodicals selection, consult the collection development policy.
