Library Homepage: Collection Development Policy

The WCTC Library serves the students, faculty, staff, and residents of the Waukesha County Technical College district.


WCTC Library Resources

The WCTC Library will maintain the following resources:

  • Material for use by students, staff, and persons who live and/or work in the district.

The primary responsibility will be to serve the reading, reference, and research needs of students, faculty, and staff as well as provide material to assist administrative and service personnel in the performance of their duties.  Secondarily, resources will be available for use by district residents and business and industry personnel within Waukesha County.

  • Material that will support students’ education goals.

Material to support technical and associate degree programs will have priority.

  • A collection of current and historical print and non-print resource materials.
  • Print and electronic resources to support specialized collections.
  • Material that will encourage and promote reading, lifelong learning, pursuit of knowledge, and the development of occupational and critical life skills.
  • Material which reflects the ideas and beliefs of religious, social, political, historical, and ethnic groups and their contribution to the American and world heritage and culture.
  • Material on controversial issues, the selection of which will be directed toward maintaining a balanced collection representing various viewpoints.
  • Material, both fiction and non-fiction, for recreational reading if resources permit.  The emphasis will be on acquiring these materials through donations.

Access to additional material from other collections will be provided through interlibrary loan, consortial and resource sharing agreements.
