Collection development policy (what the library buys or subscribes to, and why).
"Staley Library must be understood in the light of Millikin
University's dedication to education in both liberal arts and
vocational/professional skills areas. The library's holdings and
services exist primarily as a means to promote the University's broader
educational objectives. The University has traditionally prided itself
upon the excellence of its instruction and continues to emphasize
teaching rather than research. The Staley Library collection reflects
that emphasis. " The Staley Library collection is enriched by an
extensive program of interlibrary loan services.
