New Books! SAU faculty members are able to select books and other resources to be included in the Library's collection. In addition to faculty selection, the liaison librarians have small book budgets to make selections as well. I will add titles as I order them so you can see what is coming in. Please use the tabs above to find your department. Thanks.
Located in the Technical Services area of the library, Acquisitions assists 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 through the SAU portal.
Paper book order forms may be completed and sent to the acquisitions office. These are also found in the SAU portal.
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 Fall semester and the second semester deadline is usually midway into the Spring semester. All faculty are notified of the deadline dates.
