SP1.5: Library Support for New Programs and Departments

This project is designed to strengthen the holdings of the Libraries, which have suffered from years of flat budgets. The Library maintains a list of critical resources it has been unable to purchase and regularly updates it in consultation with schools, departments, and programs. Items from this list were categorized according to two criteria: (1) those needed to support new and underfunded units; and (2) those needed to support the five Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence. After consulting with the TAE steering committees, Library staff have directed resources to purchases that most directly serve the needs of faculty and research groups aligned with the TAEs.
