Library & Information Science Collection Description

The collection is maintained by the Library & Information Science Library.

The collection supports the teaching and research of the faculty of the Graduate School of Library and Information Science; the faculty of the University Library; the students enrolled in the Graduate School of Library and Information Science; and to a lesser but no less important degree, the research needs of alumnae and the library community of the state. As a professional library, the collection is focused on library and information science, but also includes relevant materials from other disciplines such as administration and book publishing. The collection is considered an outstanding research collection, and contains a notable historical collection of library annual reports and bulletins. Approximately 100,000 volumes comprise the collection, of which some 25,000 are located in the Library & Information Science Library and the rest reside in the Bookstacks.
