Faculty, staff and student recommendations for acquisitions of library materials receive priority. Materials are purchased throughout the fiscal year, and requests may be made at any time during the year. New books for class reserve should be requested four to six weeks before the class begins.
When submitting many recommendations at the same time, items should be identified according to priority status for purchase. If funds are not available, all recommendations are held until new appropriations are received. Requestors are notified when materials cannot be purchased and if there is a long delay in acquiring a particular item.
