Valencia College Library Collection Development Procedure


The reserve collection consists of professors' personal copies, departmental copies, library materials (print and non-print) and other materials prepared for reserve. Departments and professors provide the materials that are placed on reserve for their courses. Usage statistics are analyzed periodically and unused materials are returned to instructors or are removed from Reserve in the case of library material. A campus may limit the number of reserve items accepted per course due to space and staffing. Faculty is responsible for compliance with copyright laws for materials placed on reserve.  

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.
