Build Our Collection

Help us build the strong Library collections—books, media, and electronic resources—students need to succeed in their coursework.

How to Help

The library needs your suggestions. When you learn of books or electronic resources that would support your curriculum help your students accomplish their goals, let us know! Some strategies to follow:

  • If you have specific requests, you can use the online form or contact your departmental librarian directly by email, phone, or campus mail.
  • Note topics that your students are having trouble finding sources on and send to the library.
  • Invite your departmental librarian to a department meeting to discuss the collection process and identify needs.

Suggest a Title for Purchase

Please note that this form should not be used for assigned readings. For those, please see the Course Reserves page.
