Collection Development @ SJSU Library

Policies; liaison contacts; gift and endowments.


The primary goal of collection development is to insure that information resources most needed to support the University’s instructional, research and service mission are available to the faculty, students and staff at San José State University.  Formats may be print, electronic or media. Increasingly, resources are not physically housed in the library, but are available in electronic format and accessible to university faculty, students and staff anywhere with a computer and Internet access.
