About Acquisitions/Collection Services

The selection of materials to meet current and future needs of Western Kentucky University's faculty, staff, and students as well as the local citizenry is a critical service element in the Libraries' mission and is the very core of collection development. The specific curricular and disciplinary priorities for selecting and acquiring materials are set forth in Western Kentucky University Libraries Collection Development Policy (pdf).

Gift Policy

The WKU Libraries Gift Policy (pdf) follows the same criteria as purchased materials. Donations that fill a specific gap in our collection may be considered. However, all gifted materials become the property of WKU Libraries, which reserves the right to determine their retention, location, and disposition.
