Library does consult with key community stakeholders.
Much depends on the type of collection. Some collecting efforts require liaisons with community entities, others extra-
library departments, others faculty within the library, and others are archives -only controlled.
ONE Archive is largely, to date, given independence to make decisions with regard to its collection policies and care.
The fonds is governed by the Memorandum of Agreement that transfers ownership to the University Library.
The volunteers on the project also have a say on the general decision making.
While the library is responsible for making decisions about the collection’s growth and direction, it does so with support
and input from a diverse Advisory Board made up of scholars, artists, and other community members.
