New Resources for FY21

Collection Management works to build unique and dynamic collections of national significance to support all areas of scholarship at Virginia Tech. We regularly assess usage of our resources as we seek to maximize the value of our subscriptions and reflect emerging areas of research at the university. Through prudent management of our budget and data analysis we replace low-use subscriptions with new and requested resources. And, we purchase journal archives and e-book collections with one-time funds or end-of-year money. We do all this to improve access and expand the breadth and depth of the collection, and to save space by replacing and supplementing print resources with online.
