Resource Management Unit

Rod Library recently reorganized its services and staff into three divisions.  The Resource Management unit in the Content Discovery division combines acquisitions and collection management operations.  


Collections

The Collections component includes several Collection Strategist Librarians and support staff.  They are responsible for the selection of resources in all formats; management of the recurring materials budget and other funds, collection assessment and shaping of the collections and resources made available to the University community; preparation of reports on library resources and services in support of self-studies and accreditation reviews, and pursuit of cooperative collection development projects with other colleges and universities.

To identify the Collection Strategists for a particular subject area, please see: 

Collection Strategist Assignments

Questions about collections policies and procedures, and support for program and accreditation reviews, may be directed to Katherine Martin, Interim Associate Dean for Content Discovery.
