Collection Policy: Choice of Format
The library, when given the choice, will select a print version of a title when:
- The item is a core resource, as defined in the Scope of Coverage: U.S. Law By Jurisdiction section.
- The frequency and/or nature of the use of the material makes a non-print format particularly inconvenient or unwieldy, e.g., when users find it necessary to read through many pages in a volume.
- The item is so voluminous or frequently used that it would require the patron to print substantial portions for effective use.
- The titles have tables, charts, statistics, images, etc., which are most clearly presented and copied in paper format, or are unavailable online in an image format.
