The Hunt Library selects materials in accordance with the established Collection Management Policy. Furthermore, the library endorses the principles set forth by the American Library Association in the Library Bill of Rights and the Freedom to Read Statement.
Selected information resources represent the widest range of viewpoints consistent with the library and university. Resources are chosen based on their merit, regardless of their popularity, frankness of language, controversial treatment of issues, or the sex, religion, political philosophy, or national origin of the authors.
Any person requesting reconsideration of any materials in the Hunt Library's collections must complete a Reconsideration of Library Materials form.
The completed form will be reviewed by the Collection Management Team. The Head of Collection Management will draft a recommendation concerning disposition of the challenged material and forward to the Hunt Library Director along with the original Reconsideration of Library Materials Form for review. The requester will notified of a decision within 30 days of submitting the Reconsideration of Library Materials form. The material in question will remain available for circulation during the review process.
All decisions are final. Once validated by the process, materials shall not be eligible for further reevaluation as each challenged item has been through a rigorous review. An updated file listing the title, date challenged, date resolved, and disposition, will be kept by the Head of Collection Management and provided to anyone who requests the list.
