Library Policies: Collection Development Policy


General Purpose

The primary objective of collection development activities at the Hinkle Memorial Library is to build and maintain a library collection that supports the Alfred State College undergraduate curriculum.

Ultimate responsibility for the development and maintenance of library collections rests with the Director of the Library.

Gifts and donated items once accepted become the property of the Library.  Gifts and donations might be added to the collection or offered to other libraries through the Gifts & Exchange program, or otherwise disposed of. In general, duplicates or items in poor condition are not retained. Donors may not impose restrictions on use of their gifts.
