Faculty may recommend books for the library collection by contacting their liaison librarian. Please allow 6-8 weeks for the library to acquire books for which no "date needed" is specified. Books being ordered from outside the U.S. may take longer. Please note that the library does not routinely purchase course required books or workbooks, these should be ordered through the Bookstore.
Please provide the following information (web links forwarded to us often do not work):
Faculty may opt to receive alerts of newly published books in their field, from which they may select recommendations for the Waidner-Spahr Library collection. Contact your liaison librarian and ask about setting up a "Gobi alert".
Our e-book strategy allows us to make available a very large number of scholarly titles at an affordable cost and with access 24/7 from on or off campus.
The library typically purchases approximately four to six thousand books per year.
