Policies and Procedures


This policy is designed to provide guidelines for the selection of library materials and to present the rationale underlying material selection at the Mississippi State University Libraries. While the policy does not pretend to anticipate every contingency that may arise, it is hoped that the philosophy expressed throughout will provide a basis for sound acquisition decisions. This policy statement will be reviewed every year.
