Southeast Missouri State Univ., Cape Girardeau.
This guide serves as an academic departmental planning instrument and provides a description of the various collections, goals, and policies of Southeast Missouri State University's Kent Library. An overview provides information about the library's mission, funding sources and allocation procedures, departmental library liaisons, overall selection criteria, and nondisciplinary and interdisciplinary criteria. The second section describes 17 of the library's collections, including the general and periodical collections, reference, microforms, rare books, and the browsing collections and describes the kinds of materials that are added to the collections. Policies governing acquisitions, by purchase and by gift, and their disposition once they have been acquired are described in the third section. The next section covers interlibrary loan policies, and the last section describes the purpose of departmental library profiles and procedures for developing the profiles. The form used to collect information for the profiles is attached, but the individual profiles from the complete guide are not included in this document. (KRN)
