Library Forms

The library's Collection Development Policy is a dynamic document outlining the current guidelines and practices to be used in the selection of all library materials

Faculty may also use the Book and Audio-Visual Request Form to request new library materials. For a list of recent acquisitions, see New Library Items.

We recommend using CHOICE Online Reviews for assistance in selecting materials. Your subject liaison will also send CHOICE review cards periodically.


The library is bound by U.S. Copyright Laws and needs to ensure proper procedures are followed. See our Reserves Policies.
