Valencia College Library Collection Development Procedure


All gifts are accepted with the understanding that no limiting conditions or restrictions are attached regarding the classification, distribution, retention or use of such gifts. Rare books are not considered to be within the scope of the general collection. A letter will be issued on request for the number and description of the materials donated. No value will be assigned to any item(s) in the gift acknowledgment letter. The decision to add a gift item to the collection will be based on the same criteria as purchased materials. The librarians retain the right to dispose of donated materials. Materials not selected for the collection will follow Valencia College Property Control Policy 6Hx28: 5-11

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.
