Appendix F: Charts

Description:

Purpose:

To provide UNK faculty, students, and staff with access to large format images related to specific study needs.

Adminstrator of the Collection:

The Curriculum Librarian, Calvin T. Ryan Library, Lower Level, (308) 865-8276

History of the Collection:

Much of the collection was not cataloged when the library adopted its present OPAC. In 2011, the collection was weeded and the remaining items cataloged into the OPAC.

Estimate of Holdings:

Approximately 50 items.

Location of Materials:

Calvin T. Ryan Library Lower Level

Acquisition:

Items are purchased for this collection based on requests from faculty members. Charts are not actively collected.

Removal:

Charts only become obsolete when the data is no longer accurate or the items become worn. As noted above, the collection was weeded in 2011 to remove such items. Much of the collection was previously uncataloged (prior to 2011 when the entire remaining collection was cataloged), so use statistics don't exist.

Language:

English is the primary language of the collection.

Chronological:

The charts appear to date back to 1980. New materials have not been added to the collection since 2007.
