The F. W. Olin Library collection development policy provides a framework for selecting, acquiring, and managing library materials to support the teaching, learning, and research needs of the Drury University community.
The library faculty is ultimately responsible for the library’s collection development. Each librarian builds a balanced collection in their liaison disciplines within the limits of an annual budget and in cooperation with departmental faculty. A librarian is assigned as the library’s liaison to each discipline on campus. The librarian liaisons establish contacts with the departmental faculty and encourage their recommendations of books and other materials that support the Drury University curriculum and research.
Did you know that Olin Library has a Book Swap area on the main floor? It is a collection of leisure reading that anyone is free to take without checking out. The core of the collection comes from best sellers withdrawn from the public library; additional books are donated by our faculty, students and staff.
