Faculty Services

Need to place a book on Course Reserves?

Please see the full instructions and course reserve form.

Need a book or article that we don't have?

You can request an InterLibrary Loan!

How it works:

  1. Fill out the form at the following link:
  2. We request the book or article from other libraries, until one accepts the request
  3. Usually it is free, but if there is a small fee, we would ask you if you are willing to pay it
  4. Once accepted, the other library sends us the book via mail or article via email and we notify you
  5. If it is a book, you return the book to us within 3 weeks, and we return it to the lending library

Please note: ILL books can take up to 2 weeks, and articles can take up to 48 hours.

You can ask the Library to purchase a book or DVD if:

  • Department Chair approves requested material
  • Faculty member provides the material's title, author, and published year OR ISBN

Please email purchase request information and Chair approval to

Book/DVD requests will be reviewed by Librarians and will be purchased based on available funds.
