Collection Development Statement: Government Documents and Information


This statement was prepared by Frank Lester, Government Information Librarian, on 13 February 2018. This is a substantial update and revision of the April 1994 collection policy document prepared by Larry Romans, former Head of the Government Information Department (from 1988 to 2014).

Sections of the 1994 collection policy were adapted from policies originally authored by Araby Greene, University of North Carolina, Asheville; Bryan Stack, University of Nebraska at Omaha; Eulalie Brown, University of New Mexico; Mary Webb Prophet, Denison University; and Peggy Walker, Florida Atlantic University.
