Library's Mission Statement

Collection Development Policy

The Library's main priority is to acquire and maintain a collection that directly supports the stated educational and curricular learning outcomes defined in the California Maritime Academy's Mission Statement. In addition, the Library acquires or provides access to materials that support faculty research and maritime industry issues. As a lesser priority, the Library seeks to serve the needs of Cal Maritime's residential population by collecting and providing access to materials that are popular in nature, in particular, materials that promote a love of reading and learning.
