Collection assessments are conducted at the Houston Cole Library to ensure that current programs are supported adequately and to find out if materials are needed for newly added programs. The Collection Development and Assessment guide (http://libguides.jsu.edu/cmdg) serves up assessments as well as links to the Collection Management and Development Policy (http://www.jsu.edu/library/pdfs/policies/cmd.pdf) and Collection Assessments (http://www.jsu.edu/library/information/collection_assessments.html).
