PURPOSE: The systematic development of the resource collection of the TTC Library requires the acquisition of new materials. This procedure guides decisions regarding the repair, replacement, removal and/or preservation of existing materials.

RESPONSIBILITY: The Library staff makes final decisions for repair, replacement, or removal of materials in the annual evaluation of the Library holdings.

    • material that has value to the curriculum but is no longer available
    • material that has value to the curriculum but is too expensive to replace
  2. Replace
    • material that has value to the curriculum, and is available and affordable
  3. Remove
    • outdated resources/materials
    • damaged materials which cannot be repaired or replaced or for which the cost of preservation exceeds the value of the material
