New titles are acquired by the Libraries in one of two ways: 1) Direct Order by the Selector, 2) Demand Driven Acquisition. This list features titles that were purchased by me as the selector for Anthropology. I select titles using the following methods: solicit titles from Anthropology faculty and students, review Anthropology syllabi, consult academic reviews of new and classic titles.
Demand Driven Acquisition is the process by which titles are added if they are regularly being requested by alternative borrowing processes such as UBorrow and Inter-Library Loan. These titles do not remain in the collection long-term as a limited license is the default purchase type.
If you would like a title added to the collection, and would like it to be widely available or a permanent selection, please send me your requests directly.
A number of new databases have been added from the Adam Mathew Digital collection: including African American Communities, American Indian Histories and Cultures, China: Culture and Society, Defining Gender, and many more!
