  • Archival Studies
  • Digital Libraries
  • Human-Computer Interaction & Information Architecture
  • Organization and Retrieval of Knowledge and Information
  • Preservation and Conservation of Physical and Digital Artifacts

English is the primary language of collection.  The focus is mainly on United States libraries and librarianship, though other materials are selected as appropriate or when requested.

Both electronic and print format monographs are collected, with emphasis given to the format that best meets the needs of the primary users. Online versions of journals and other serials are always prioritized, though print serials are collected when it is the only format offered.
