Collection Development Policy:
It is the mission of the Curriculum Center to provide the resources that faculty and students need to prepare lesson plans, assignments, and materials for use with K-12 and pass tests required for certification. It is not the intent of the Curriculum Center to duplicate materials found in Reese Library or Media Services, but rather to provide a collection that compliments those. In its collection development the Curriculum Center strives to provide materials that will assist students in preparing lesson plans, thematic units, assignments, and materials for use with K-12 students.
Current standards, such as the Georgia Standards issued by the Georgia Department of Education, are used as guides in selecting materials.
Materials collected include: children's literature, children's books on various reading levels and subjects, thematic units, activity-based books and magazines, GACE Test study materials, games and hands-on materials, and a selection of textbooks for K-12. With limited funds, needs are prioritized each year and money is first spent on those with highest priority.
Donations are accepted as space allows when they will provide current, needed materials that will not duplicate offerings in other areas on campus.
The manager of the Curriculum Center is responsible for collection development and seeks input from faculty and students in the process.
Weeding is the active discarding or transferring to storage of unneeded Curriculum Center items. It is not simply the passive withdrawal of the records of lost books or the withdrawal of books so damaged that they are no longer usable.
