There is no longer an online form for acquisition requests. All you need to do is:

1. Collect as much identifying information as you can about the item, e.g.:

  • Full Title
  • Edition
  • Author/Editor/Director/Playwright or authoring organization
  • Publisher/Production Company
  • Place of Publication
  • Year of Publication
  • ISBN (if available)
  • Hardcover/softcover


2. send an email to the appropriate subject specialist librarian noting reasons for inclusion in the collection.

Another option is to fill out an ILL loan request, and select "Yes" in this dropdown:
