Collection Development @ SJSU Library

College of Education


College of Education librarians coordinate selection with other librarians, especially, in the School of Information, Health Sciences, Psychology, and English Departments.

Acquisition, cancelation and other collection decisions in these areas of overlap is decided in consultation with faculty and librarians responsible for collection development in these fields.

In addition, many formal and informal cooperative arrangements make the vast holdings of other libraries within the CSU system, the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond available to SJSU students.

One Education liaison is a voting member of the College of Education Curriculum Committee—a committee comprised of one representative from each of the departments, College Leadership and others. Membership on this committee allows proactive participation in changing the curriculum, offering new courses and obtaining new resources necessary to support the College of Education.
