Collection Development

At HSU, library materials are chosen and reviewed by library subject specialists working with teaching faculty and students. Purchases and cancellations are coordinated by the Collection Development Librarian, Mary Kay (L117, 826-3414).

Faculty or students wishing to suggest titles for purchase should send an email message to Mary Kay with publication information. Since the Library has very limited funds for new books and videos, please indicate how the title will be used in HSU instruction. Since there is no longer sufficient budget to support purchase of research materials, faculty are encouraged to use Interlibrary Loan to obtain what they need for research.

Orders for new titles usually take about 4-6 weeks, but the timeframe can be unpredictable. If you have a deadline in mind such as course reserve, please communicate this at the time you submit an order.
