Library Collections Information: Suggest a Purchase/Contact Us

Request a Purchase and Contact Us

Requesting a Purchase
We welcome suggestions for additions to the collection that support the curriculum, while asking that these recommendations are made with the libraries' budgetary limitations (mentioned on other pages in this guide) in mind. When reviewing requests, the library staff will look at criteria that include pricing, relevance to the curriculum, accessibility, and compatibility with existing systems, among other factors.
