Collection Focus:  
Asian Economic Topics: India, Japan, Pacific Islands

The Library purchased books to support its collection of materials on economic and business topics related to India, Japan, and the Pacific Islands.  This would include, but not be restricted to, the subjects of economic history, political economy, economic geography, foreign aid, consumer electronics, and consumer culture/behavior.

The College of DuPage Library has reciprocal borrowing agreements with Elmhurst College, Benedictine University, North Central College, and Wheaton College, making it easy for their students and faculty to borrow these materials directly from COD.  Library patrons or students of the other colleges can become College of DuPage Library borrowers if they reside within Community College District 502. Members of the general public who hold College of DuPage library cards will also be able to borrow these materials. All items purchased are fully cataloged and listed in OCLC WorldCat international union catalog and available to all state residents through the standard interlibrary loan channels. The Library has also established a separate partnership with the Arlington Heights Public Library, Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin, Skokie Public Library, and the Elgin Community College, whereby a union catalog of holdings of these institutions has been created, providing library users with easy and convenient access to materials from these libraries.
