Request Purchase

The Library welcomes your recommendations for the purchase of materials for the Library collection. We purchase books, periodicals, and DVDs.

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.

To request an item for purchase, click below:


Please fill in as much information as possible about the item you are requesting (Book, Periodical, DVD). Please submit a separate form for each item. Please note that filling out this form does not guarantee that the title requested will be purchased.  All requests will be reviewed by the appropriate subject-area librarian. Factors considered in the selection of materials include the collection policy for the subject, the cost of the title, and the availability of funds.
