Wayne G. Basler Library Policy and Procedures

Reconsideration of Materials

Despite the care taken by the librarians in choosing materials for inclusion in the collection, objections to a work may occasionally occur. If this occurs, there should be an initial attempt at resolution between the patron and a librarian. The patron should first be directed to the Dean of the Library (or Collection Development Librarian should the Dean be unavailable) to discuss the nature of the objection. The patron, if not satisfied with the outcome of the discussion, may file a written objection using the Request for Reconsideration of Materials form. The objection will be reviewed by the Library Subcommittee, and the patron will be notified when a decision has been made.
