Collection Development Policy

Collection Development General Practices

Collection of Faculty Publications


The Library does not actively seek to collect SHSU faculty publications. If a SHSU professor wishes to have copy of their monograph publication added to the main collection, they may:

  • Request that the library purchase a copy of their monograph to add to the main collection. 
  • Donate a copy of the monograph

The subject liaison may comply with the request at their discretion. 


The Library cannot necessarily subscribe to a journal containing a faculty member's published articles. However, the library will gladly accept an electronic copy of a faculty member's article into the Institutional Repository. All rights and restrictions associated with housing an article in the Institutional Repository apply.
