Faculty, students, and staff can recommend that the library purchase materials.

Do We Already Own It?

First, search our catalog to see if we already own an item. Try OneSearch or Ebook Central.

If you can’t find what you are looking for, you may be able to still borrow a copy. See if we can get it for you through our Interlibrary Borrowing (Interlibrary Loan) service.

Student and Staff Recommendations

We welcome student and staff suggestions for items to add to the library collection. Please contact our Collection Strategies Librarian with any recommendations.

Please note that we cannot order textbooks for you. We are mindful of these expenses and support the movement for open educational resources and open access.

Faculty Course-Related Requests

Our library faculty serve as liaisons to your schools and departments. Faculty should contact the subject librarian assigned to their school or department if they would like to suggest a new journal subscription, database subscription, or any other non-Reserve item. Your librarian liaison can help you find what you are looking for or initiate an order.

For information about placing materials on reserve for a course, please consult our Reading Lists section.
