The Collection Management Department:
Provides direct support to faculty and liaisons in selecting library materials.
Offers training and assistance in using the library's ordering systems.
Shapes the library collection by establishing purchasing policies and adjusting departmental allocations for one-time and database purchases.
We are available Monday to Friday from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
Books written or edited by UMBC faculty and staff are actively collected by the library. Please notify the Collection Management Librarian if you have recently had a book published, so that copies can be purchased for the collection. One copy is cataloged and added to the Special Collections Faculty and Staff Collection.
There are more than one million items in the Library collection. For a further look at what your library holds, please see Find Books & Media.
Gifts and Donations
The Library relies on the generosity of donors who have greatly assisted us in developing a full collection by giving books, journals, photographs, and other materials. If you have materials you think would be suitable and are interested in donating them to the UMBC Library, please read our Gifts and Donations information.
For questions or further information about either book ordering or donating materials, please contact the Collection Management office at 410-455-2341 or email@example.com.
Deliveries can be made to the loading dock at the rear of the library. Please view the campus map to find the library location on campus.
