Collection Development Guidelines for the UWM Authors Collection
The UWM Authors Collection is composed of monographs written, edited, compiled, translated, or illustrated by UWM staff during the time when they were employed at UWM. A large number of volumes in the collection have been donated by UWM authors. The collection was established in 1973 to assemble, "as complete a collection as possible of the writings of UWM faculty." Due to the fact that some materials are better served in the stacks or other locations in the library, the UWM Authors Collection is not comprehensive. The collection is housed in Special Collections.
