The materials and information resources found in the IU Kokomo Library reflect the mission of the library to support the University's academic curriculum. The objective of the library is to build a quality collection of books, periodicals, media, and online resources that reinforces the academic programs and course assignments at Indiana University Kokomo.
Collection priorities are reviewed annually, and high priority is given to types of resources that are identified by the Library Dean and Library Faculty as materials that should be acquired in order to support new campus objectives, as well as maintain a relevant and current collection. The library also places special emphasis on purchasing resources with global or diverse content, since such resources strengthen the library's collection by adding depth to the resources the library currently provides to support the University's curriculum.
For more information, see the library's Collection Development Policy, which is reviewed annually.
The library welcomes suggestions for library materials that will support the University's academic programs or course assignments. See our Ordering Library Materials page for more information. Information on the library's Book Review Programs, which may aid you in your material suggestions, is found on our Book Review Programs page.
