University Library

New Books Request Form

Selection Resources

The library provides a subscription to Choice Reviews, a resource for academic book reviews. 

Order Deadline

The deadline for submitting faculty orders is the end of March. This is to allow ample time to receive and pay for the materials before the end of the fiscal year. After the deadline is past, the remaining funds revert to the general library fund and are spent on materials selected by the librarians.

Turnaround Time

For print books, it takes an average of three months from the time an order is received until the material is cataloged and ready for use. Electronic book orders usually will be available for use within ten business days. Questions about the status of an order may be directed to:
