Collection Development Policy
The higher education environment is constantly
changing, as is information technology and the global information
economy. This means that the Librarys policies must be flexible to
adjust and adapt to changing requirements.
Providing customer-focused quality services is
the Librarys driving force. Links to learning resources including
locally held electronic resources are provided via the Librarys
website. The Library has been in the forefront of the development of
subject gateways or portals to provide quick access to quality web
The effectiveness of the Library in service
delivery is strongly influenced by the effective implementation of
information technology. A single interface to all Library collections
and services is provided by the Librarys web site.
While the Library aims to be self-sufficient in
the support of undergraduate requirements for resources, it is
impossible for the Library to hold every item needed to support the
requirements of the Universitys researchers. The Library provides an
inter-library loan and document delivery service as a mechanism to
supplement its local collections.
Traditionally, AIMST Library has collected and
maintained information in print form, such as monographs and journals.
However, it has also supplemented traditional holdings with electronic
information resources such as electronic journals and databases. The
rapid and continuous evolution of information technology creates
pressures for both the Library and its users to keep up-to-date while
maintaining existing resources. Electronic document delivery has
improved the Librarys ability to satisfy user requests without the need
for physical ownership.
