Costs - Out of Print Material

Selected materials deemed worthy of long term accessibility and of permanent value to the Library District’s collection may be assigned a monetary value greater that the original price for the purpose of retaining specific items in the collection through discouragement of the customers willful purchase of these items from the Library.

Out of print items are designated as such in various bibliographic tools and databases, i.e., BT LINK, BIP, BIP PLUS, etc.

Procedures shall be established by District staff to ensure that out of print items are noted with an increased monetary value in the automated database for the purpose of preserving their availability if deemed appropriate.
