We are happy to receive your suggestions for our collection. We depend on your expertise in your subject area to make our collection as comprehensive as possible. And, here at the library, you will be held in the highest esteem if you remember to check our catalog before you request a title.
Here's how to order materials for the library: Orders may be sent to the Acquisitions Department via our Book Purchase Request Form (for Non-Reserve items). Or, send your orders via e-mail to our Acquisitions Librarian, Susan Decker-Herman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include as much information about the item(s) as possible (available from WorldCat or Amazon.com) so that the order can be placed as quickly as possible. It can take as much as two months from the time an in-print book is ordered until it reaches the shelves. Susan can also be reached at ext 7617, please call her if you have further questions.
If you would like to request items to be put on Book Reserve for a course, please use the Book Reserves Purchase Request Form and direct your questions to Eric Hills, the Reserves Associate, at email@example.com.
Requests for new journal subscriptions from faculty, staff, and students are reviewed any time of the year. New titles are purchased in May, at the time of our annual subscription renewal. Our review of these requests typically involves several factors: likelihood of regular undergraduate use; availability of indexing; adequacy of existing collection coverage; reach of content across the curriculum; and, because we can never afford everything we need, price.
Requests for new subscriptions should be sent to the Collection Development Librarian, Jane Dougall, in Room 102, Stevenson Library, or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
