None; history/philosophy of mathematics collected only minimal-basic level
Older materials are used and considered valuable but they are not actively acquired except in special cases, for example, to replace important lost and missing items which are not available via MOBIUS. Although it hasn’t happened, I could imagine retrospective acquisition if a new faculty member were hired who works in some area we have not collected before.
9. Other factors to consider:
(Except where noted above most of math is at level 3B (Advanced Study) or 4 (Comprehensive). Areas indicated in red italics are more likely to be level 4 since those are current research areas for faculty).
0 - Out of Scope
1 - Minimal Level
2 - Basic Informational Level
3A - Introductory Study
3B - Advanced Study
4 - Research
5 - Comprehensive
