Faculty in each department or program may select materials based on the curricular needs of their department. The collection is meant to support student coursework and student research.
Each department appoints a faculty member to be their representative to the Library. This person can coordinate orders for the department, but individual faculty can also submit orders directly to the library.
Each department also has a librarian assigned to be their liaison. You liaison can help you with questions you have about ordering or if you would like assistance identifying titles in certain subject areas or formats that are available for purchase.
Orders can be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or sent to Tanna Cullen, Box #227. Only firm orders should be sent this way.
Rush orders should include:
Major reference books or sets that cover broad subject areas are usually purchased with funds allocated specially for that purpose, and are usually chosen by the reference librarians. If you would like to recommend a reference title, please send that recommendation to your librarian liaison. Reference works covering narrow subject specific topics can be selected by faculty in the same way as other titles.
If you know of a title the library should have, but which falls outside your department's subject areas, you can recommend it by either contacting someone in a department under whom it would more logically fall or you can send a recommendation to the Library Director, Jeff Douglas (x7491, Box #227).
Sometimes items are just too expensive to go through as a departmental order. If you would like us to consider something that is over $200, please contact your librarian liaison, and provide as much information as you can as to why the resource is needed for your students. The Library Director will review these requests in conjunction with the subject liaison. In a case like this we may look for special funds that can be used to acquire the item(s).
