Policies and Procedures

The purpose of the Historical Collections Policies and Procedures is to codify the policies, procedures, and responsibilities for the acquisition, care, and use of materials accessioned into the Health Sciences Historical Collections. These policies and procedures are an addendum to the policies and procedures of the Health Sciences Library; if any conflict between policies and procedures exists, those of the Historical Collections supersede those of the Health Sciences Library.

The purpose of the HSHC is to collect, catalog, preserve, and make available for research materials that are of historical significance to the health sciences and their practitioners, especially in Tennessee.
