Policy Analysis and Management Collection
Library Subject Collection
subject description and guidelines
The Libraries seek to support research and instruction in the areas of policy analysis and management. The major areas of scholarship are formulating, implementing, managing, and evaluating public sector programs. This includes family and social welfare, particularly the intersection between work, family and financial well-being; health, particularly policy and management issues on cost, quality, and access to health services; and, consumer policy, including social, legal and regulatory and economic environment on consumer and producer behavior.
The collection is used by faculty, staff and students of the Department of Policy Analysis and Management and related graduate fields.
Overall, the collecting goals for Policy Analysis and Management are suitable for dissertation-level research and undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate education.
The collecting scope is global, with an emphasis on the United States and North America. The department is expected to increase global research efforts in the future.
Unless recommended by the department, the library does not purchase materials published more than 10 years ago.
Broadly, policy analysis and management emphasize scholarly communication through academic and specialized journals. Scholarly, trade monographs and serials, textbooks and data sets are also collected.
