Collection Development and Reading List Policy

This policy sets out the framework through which the Library will work in collaboration with academic and research staff of the University to ensure that stock and content is selected, sourced, acquired, made available, maintained and retired in order to develop Library collections that support,

  • The student learning experience, providing adequate and equitable access to core learning materials required to progress and complete studies, supporting student attainment
  • The teaching and learning needs of the University, Faculties, Schools and programmes, including the growth of online teaching and blended learning delivery
  • The research needs of the University and its Research Institutes

This policy applies to the main Charles Seale-Hayne Library site, and to the PAHC Library on the North Plymouth campus. It covers all materials requested to support reading and self-directed learning on programmes of study, and used to support research, and is not restricted to physical collections or traditional book and journal formats.
