Collection Management

      Collection Management investigates and orders library resources including books, journals, databases, and other materials for Arkansas State University students, faculty, and staff, maintains the Library's materials' budget, and solicits book and journal donations.

     We also maintain current journal and newspaper subscriptions which includes monitoring online access, processing print journals and newspapers received each day to make them available for public use, and maintaining the journals area.
