Collection Development

Collection Development Policy

It is the policy of the Library to obtain and make available those materials needed for the instructional programs offered by the college as well as acquire and make available materials required by students, faculty and staff for their general research. Recommendations for purchases by Medaille Faculty, Students and Staff should be submitted to the appropriate departmental liaison. Faculty members wishing to recommend databases for purchase should contact Andy Yeager, Library Director.

The Medaille College Library collects both print and online materials. Print materials are accessible to all Medaille students, faculty and staff on Buffalo and Rochester campuses. Online materials are accessible from all three campuses, as well as remotely. When appropriate, we supplement the Library’s collection by requesting materials for Medaille students, faculty, and staff through interlibrary loan.
