Collection Development & Preservation

The Collection Development & Preservation Department supports George Mason University’s commitment to lifelong learning and academic excellence by providing an outstanding research collection for its students, faculty, and staff.

To this end, the department will actively select materials that develop a strong collection in collaboration with faculty and students to ensure relevance to evolving instructional, curricular, and research needs. Ongoing review and evaluation of library resources and services are carried out in collaboration with the university community to determine the nature of resources and services needed.
