Faculty are able to select books and other resources to be included in the Library's collection. Liaison librarians also have budgets to make selections as well. This guide contains recently ordered titles. Please use the tabs above to find your department. If you have questions or suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!
Located in the Technical Services area of the library, Acquisitions assists faculty in ordering books and DVDs 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 orders to the Acquisitions Department:
Use the online faculty book request form .
Send paper order forms to the Acquisitions office. Forms can be found in the SAU portal.
Orders or suggestions for purchase may also be sent to the appropriate liaison librarian.
There are two deadlines for submitting book orders. The first deadline is near the end of the Fall semester and the second semester deadline is usually midway into the Spring semester. All faculty are notified of the deadline dates.
