Collection Management @ UM Libraries

Page Introduction

This page lists all significant additions to the UM Libraries' collection. We may have also added resources (e.g., individual journals, monographs). You can view all recent monograph purchases in the library catalog and consult with your liaison about any recently subscribed journals.

There are three ways resources are added to the general library collection:

  1. Subscription - ongoing annual cost in order to maintain access
  2. One-time purchase with annual fee - requires a relatively small fee for annual updates and/or platform maintenance
  3. One-time purchase with no annual fees - no additional costs required by UM Libraries 

All three acquisition methods are included, and indicated, on this page.

If you would like to suggest a purchase, please contact your subject librarian or Brian Young (bwyoung@olemiss.edu)
