Located in the Technical Services area of the library, it is the mission of the Acquisitions Department to assist faculty in ordering books and videos to be added to the Library's collection.  The CHOICE magazine is available in the Library for those looking for book reviews.  CHOICE may also be accessed online.

There are several ways in which to submit book orders to the Acquisitions Department:

  • Online book order forms may be filled out and sent in.
  • Paper book order forms may be completed and sent to the acquisitions office.
  • Orders or suggestions for purchase may be sent to the appropriate liaison librarian.

There are two deadlines for submitting book orders.  The first deadline is near the end of the semester, on or about November 15.  The second semester deadline is usually midway into the Spring semester, approximately April 1.  All faculty are notified of the deadline dates.

Our online book order form is available on the web at: the Acquisitions Assistant for the username and password.

A printable book order form is available by clicking here.
