Ruby E. Dare Collection Development Policy Statement

Ruby E. Dare Collection Development Policy Statement


“The Ruby E. Dare Library collects materials that support the current curricular needs of Greenville University undergraduate and graduate programs, serving both on-campus and online students. We strive to enhance and simplify access to resources that support and enrich our users’ teaching and learning, acquire print and electronic collections for the campus community, and cultivate partnerships with other academic libraries to achieve fast and efficient access.

The Library seeks to build collections that include a wide range of voices, communities, histories, and perspectives, providing the range of argument and opinion that generally mirrors the range present among scholars in each field. The library does not limit acquisitions to authors whose arguments or opinions accord with the college community’s theological convictions and therefore does not ban specific books or resources. Availability of materials does not necessarily represent an endorsement by either the institution or by the library staff of ideas or opinions they contain.

While we support the collection of research materials, we are not explicitly a research library or a repository. The Library seeks to acquire materials that exemplify Greenville University’s commitment to the integration of faith and learning while supporting discovery and dissemination of knowledge, and protecting the freedom of inquiry through research, teaching, and learning.”
