Collection Management

Many of the approximately 15,000+ books form a unique core of technical and services-oriented material as well as popular and leisure reading. Audiovisual titles number more than 3,000. The serials collection includes current magazine and newspaper titles.

Major North Dakota newspapers and many weeklies are in the reading area, as well as current issues of magazines.

The Collection Management Department of Mildred Johnson Library supports collection development, acquisitions, and maintenance of the database that supports the online catalog. It is this department's responsibility to acquire, catalog, and process materials for patron use in a timely manner. The library uses the Dewey Decimal Classification system and the Library of Congress Subject Headings. The collection is developed to support the evolving instructional programs at NDSCS. In procuring materials, freedom of academic inquiry will not in any way be violated. Input and requests from all patrons are encouraged. Resources that are obtained include print and non-print.
