Collection Development Policy for Faculty Authors’ Publications (Updated 2012)

The collection development policy for faculty publications is for the Davis Library and Armstrong Science Library to collect all faculty publications for the circulating collection (main stacks); to maintain permanent Faculty Authors displays with contemporary faculty authors; and for the College Archives to accept faculty publications as second copies when they are donated as gifts.

Our Collection Development Policy states: The Library actively collects monographs written by, or with contributions by, Middlebury College faculty. We selectively collect works by visiting faculty, instructors at the Bread Loaf School of English, the Language Schools, and the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

The collection development policy for faculty publications was amended circa 2004 when purchasing all faculty publications for the College Archives (‘Archives P’) was deemed an unsustainable practice due to both space limitations and budgetary considerations. Also, Special Collections provides only reduced access to these publications due to limited Special Collections hours and non-circulation status for all holdings.
