Suggest a Purchase

The Library welcomes suggestions from all members of the community for the acquisition of materials which support the University's teaching and research programs. Before submitting a request, please check the online catalog to determine whether the material you want is already owned by the Library or on order.

  • If the material has a call number but is not on the shelf or checked out, please click on the "Can't Find it?" link in the Catalog to submit a search request and Library staff will try to locate the item for you.
  • If the material is already on order, you may click on the "Place Hold" link in the Catalog to submit a hold request and the item will be held for pickup when it arrives.

All purchase suggestions will be reviewed by the appropriate subject bibliographers in light of their collection development policies and you will receive notification of their decision.
