Valencia College Library Collection Development Procedure

Objectives of the Collection Development Process

  • To provide bibliographic control over print and non-print materials using accepted standards and practices;  

  • To organize print and non-print materials into collections cataloged according to the Library of Congress Classification System;  

  • To acquire and organize materials that support a diverse community, encourage academic achievement, student success, lifelong learning, and enhance teaching excellence;  

  • To provide a variety of information resources that support the college curriculum 

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.
