Collection Development Guidelines

The Libraries support the mission of Centennial College to educate students for career success.  Learning and teaching are the core activities of the college and the collection directly supports these activities.  The primary goal of the library is to meet the information needs of Centennial's clientele.  The goal of collection development is to provide an organized collection of print and electronic materials that meet these needs.

The librarian(s) at each campus select(s) materials for the collection.  Recommendations from all users are welcome.

Librarians consider the following during the selection process:

  • Faculty/student/staff recommendations based on curriculum needs
  • Relevance to the field of study
  • Professional literature reviews
  • Publisher brochures
  • Currency
  • Format
  • Budget
