Recently acquired books are currently on display on the first floor of the Library in Heathcote Court. Come visit, grab a book, and relax in a soft chair! New titles are added frequently as we continue to manage the collection.

Librarians and library staff develop the Library's collections by acquiring materials over a period of time based on the continual assessment of the information needs of the Library's users. In addition to ongoing materials acquisition, developing the Library's collection involves:

  • replacement of damaged or lost materials,
  • removal of materials no longer needed, based on criteria such as currency, usage, and condition,
  • and the formulation of policies that determine selection or deselection criteria.
Our goal is to build a useful and balanced collection that meets the research needs of MSU. To recommend a purchase, contact your Library Liaison or make a Purchase Request online.
