General collection

When selecting materials for the general collection, priority is given to those materials that support curricular needs. 

Reference collection

The reference collection is non-circulating and materials included in it will be selected in all areas where factual information may be desired.  They may include the following:  almanacs, directories, encyclopedias both general and subject specific, handbooks, dictionaries, statistical sources.  Superseded editions may be retained in reference, weeded, or added to the general collection. 

Archival collection

As staff and space allow, the Library maintains a collection of materials that document the college’s history and development such as press releases, photos, etc. 

Periodical collection

Our periodical collection includes both scholarly and popular magazines, journals, and newspapers. 

Reserve collection
