Standard statement. This collection includes the following: rhetorical works (the speech act); oral interpretation; public address or debate; oration, and all other items relating to spoken communication other than speech pathology or linguistics. The Communications Library and the Undergraduate Library also collect on a general basis the same subjects described above.
Below is a table that lists specific subject subdivisions within the collection. Each row in the table lists a specific subject subdivision, followed by three columns noting: Collection Strength, Primary Assignments and Secondary Assignments. The Existing Collecting Strength column notes how well the existing collection covers that topic on a 1 to 5 scale with 5 being very strong. The Primary Assignments column lists departmental libraries that have the greatest collection intensity of subject materials, respectively. In the case of 2 or more libraries listed, the collection intensity is comparable. The Secondary Assignments column list departmental libraries where additional materials may be found.
