Ordering Resources

Book & Video Orders

Faculty members may submit orders using our online request form.

Please remember that all orders must be prioritized using the following scale.

  1. Item needed for course reserves (any semester) or current semester class.
  2. Essential purchase for existing or new class and/or research. You expect high use into the future, including use by students.
  3. Good title but not essential; you expect lower use.
  4. Might be nice to have. You expect little use by students. Would interlibrary loan suffice?
