Single Periodical Issues

Collection Development Policy

The library acquires single periodical issues at the discretion of the appropriate subject bibliographer if the issues are thematic in nature, that is, focused on a single topic; and represent a significant addition to holdings in a discipline. The issues are handled as monographs in encumbering and expending funds and cataloged as standalone titles. Issues requested because of interest in a single article are not acquired for the collection or for individual use.
