Library Services will purchase knowledge-based resources that support the pediatric clinical care, education, and research needs of CMH staff, recognizing that those needs may change over time. All retention, access, and disposal policies will be made with the intent that CMH staff continue to have the best resources available to them within the means of our budget.
Guidelines for Selecting Materials:
Maintenance of the Collection:
Bibliographic Access to the Collection
Bibliographic records will be maintained in the library catalog, and when appropriate, in resource sharing catalogs. Access to the collection is governed by the Eligible Users Policy and by our license agreements with vendors.
All print materials are cataloged according to the National Library of Medicine Classification System which has been modified for our pediatric collection. Online subscriptions will be discoverable in our E-journals portal and might not appear in the library catalog.
