The IVMF Collection Development Policy provides a framework for the growth and development of collections in order to support the IVMF's mission to empower service members, veterans, and their families through actionable research, innovative programs, and insightful analytics. The Collection Development Policy includes collection objectives, collection formats, donation and gift policies, weeding policies, weeding criteria and best practices. Below are summaries of key FAQ's about our collection objectives, what we collect, how to make a suggestion, and what happens when/if we remove an item. To read our full policy, please click here.
