The Collection Development Department identifies appropriate scholarly resources, acquires or licenses the use of library materials, and performs collection assessments. Primary activities of the Collection Development Department include negotiation with vendors and publishers for books, periodicals and databases; receipt and processing of gift materials to the Libraries; evaluation of the collections’ strengths for accreditation; identification of needed research resources to support UNT’s wide-ranging curricula; management of ordering and payment systems for materials; and providing technical support for electronic resources.
Working with faculty and librarians, the Collection Development Department strives to provide the best possible research resources for the use of students and faculty.
