Physical Education and Recreation
The Physical Education & Recreation division does not support the curriculum of any particular academic department or program, but provides general reading material, both academic and recreational, to the students, faculty, and staff at UM-Flint.
Monographs. The Physical Education & Recreation collection holds 738 monographs, which is equivalent to a 3b, and is 371% of the number from the modified ACRL standard (199). The median age of the books in this division is 15 years old, with 38% published in the last decade.
Acquisitions. No single academic department bears primary responsibility for collecting materials for this division. In the past ten years, the Library has added an average of 28 relevant books annually, which is 19% of the domestic publishing output total (equivalent to a strong 3a). Maintaining the current acquisition rate, at a discounted average price of $27.81 apiece, would require a monographs expenditure of $779.
Periodicals. The Library does not subscribe to any indexes geared specifically towards sports, games, or recreation. There are only 8 relevant Wilson-indexed periodical titles, of which the Library has paper subscriptions to none and web access to 2.
