Valencia College Library Collection Development Procedure

Materials to Support New Programs

In order to respond to collection development needs of existing and newly developed courses and programs of instruction, a librarian serves as a member of the Curriculum Committee. Establishing the need for library materials to support new programs is part of the curriculum approval process. Materials needed to establish collections for new programs and/or courses should be listed on the course or program application form in order for necessary funds to be allocated. Please refer to the Valencia Curriculum Committee website.

The Valencia College libraries do not welcome solicitation of resources to be added to our LibGuides. This includes but is not limited to vendors, search engine optimizers, placement of ads, products, or any other requests. Our LibGuides are carefully curated resources developed in partnership with faculty, staff, and students to support specific assignments, courses, events, and other related purposes at Valencia College. The Valencia libraries reserve the right to ignore LibGuide resource solicitations, and/or block persistent requests from groups or individuals to add or promote links in our LibGuides.
