Can't find what you're looking for at our Library? You can get the material you need by requesting that we borrow the title from another institution or making a suggestion that we purchase the title.

Before Suggesting a Purchase

The library attempts to purchase materials you will be interested in, but sometimes we miss something. If your suggestion fits our Materials Selection Policy (PDF), we will get it and notify you as soon as the item is available.

To request an item, fill out the Material Request form

  • Material Purchase Requests require a minimum of two weeks to process.
