Recommendations for Library Acquisitions

Rod Library seeks to provide access to resources that will meet the instructional, research, and informational needs of the University community. It welcomes recommendations for additions to the Library's collections or for the provision of access to remote electronic resources from University faculty, staff, and students and from members of the public. Anonymous recommendations are accepted.

All recommendations are reviewed within the Collection Management and Special Services Department. Not all resources that are recommended for purchase or license can be acquired. Incoming recommendations are reviewed to determine that sufficient information is available to identify and evaluate the title or resource in question. All recommendations for items not already in the collection, on order, or accessible under subscription or site license are routed to the appropriate subject bibliographer for consideration. Purchase decisions are made in keeping with established collection management policies, the availability of funds, and technical and licensing considerations.
