Introduction from the Library Collection Management Guidelines document:
The San Diego City College Library provides access to resources and services that support the academic success of City College students. Material formats include books, periodicals, electronic resources (e-resources) and media resources. While the curriculum is the foremost component in the collection development criteria, the library recognizes that close collaboration with the faculty is required to maintain the most relevant collection possible. All collection development decisions, including acceptance of gifts and withdrawal of materials, are the responsibility of the library. Suggestions from students, staff and faculty are strongly encouraged. These guidelines support the mission of the library and the college by providing guidelines for collection development and maintenance.

San Diego City College's Library faculty uphold the American Library Association's (ALA) Code of Ethics and the interpretation of the Library Bill of Rights set forth by ALA for Academic Libraries. In all activities, we seek out and strive to apply current best practices relevant to the services and the selection of, acquisition of, and access to, the resources we provide San Diego City College students, staff and faculty.
In compliance with District Administrative Policy (AP) 5040, the San Diego City College Library has developed these guidelines for its services and collections:
San Diego City College Library faculty provide equal access to reference services to all members of the City College campus. All reference interactions, as are all circulating interactions, are held in confidence.
Technical Services provides access to information by acquiring and cataloging books, controlling periodical check-in and maintaining electronic access with no filtering among other things. These functions are guided by American Library Association ethics which insist on equal access to information.
