Library Acquisition & Textbook Requests

It’s that time of year again

Get a head start on your spring classes by placing library acquisition and textbook requests.

All RU faculty are welcome and encouraged to submit requests for library collection purchases that support their teaching and research goals. Faculty are also welcome to request a single copy of a textbook for current or upcoming courses. Textbooks will be placed on reserves in the library of your choice.

To make a library acquisition or textbook request, please visit the Library’s website and click on the “Purchase Requests” link with the title, author, year, and any other relevant publication information.

Remember to check the catalog to see if we already have an item before you make your request. For a better chance that requests arrive by the first day of the spring semester, please submit all requests by Oct. 31. Due to the high costs of textbooks, the Library will attempt to accommodate all textbook requests within budget.
