How much stuff is in the library? A collection snapshot

Library Collection Snapshot

Do you ever wonder exactly how much stuff is in the library? So do we. At the end of each academic year, we gather statistics to keep track of how the collection changes. As of June 30, 2015, the library’s collection looked like this:

Many of these items are not actually “in” the library at all, but are online journals, books, mp3s and streaming videos available to users 24/7, for the convenience of those doing work from afar or completing assignments at the very last minute.  Don’t worry that we are losing the books: we have a robust print collection as well as a growing new popular fiction collection just across from Starbucks and the current magazines and newspapers.
