The library’s collection is aimed at supporting the College’s instructional programs. To that end, the library will acquire materials according to the following priorities;
- To support the curriculum and provide materials relevant to the courses offered by the colleges
- To support faculty and institutional research
Support for in-depth faculty and institutional research may not always be possible through material acquisition. Consequently, the library has an interlibrary program.
