Periodic evaluation of the CML is necessary in order to anticipate and respond to changes in university curriculum, educational trends, cooperative collection development agreements, long-range planning, budget, and to identify the collection’s development and management needs.
A collection assessment will be conducted every 5 years in order to examine the collection’s strengths, weaknesses, levels of collection, physical condition, age, and use. The information is used to inform and adjust the current collection policies, mission, and long term goals of the CML.
