Faculty may request library materials for the Library Collections. Book, video, and music CD requests may be:

Liaison Librarians are assigned subject area collection development, research, and instruction responsibilities which generally match their academic backgrounds and interests. Find your Library Liaison here.

If you have any questions about purchasing new materials please see our Collection Development Policy.
For more information about instruction, see our webpage on Library Instruction or contact the Instruction Coordinator at x1960.
Try our online Research Guides as a starting point, or request a course- or topic-specific one through your Library Liaison.
We also have a guide to Databases By Subject that can help you and your students locate critical materials more quickly.
The library recommends the web browser app Zotero, "...a free, easy-to-use Firefox extension to help you collect, manage, and cite your research sources. It lives right where you do your work — in the web browser itself.”
With Zotero, you can create a Zotero library, complete with citations, for:
- Books, journal articles, and websites
- Creating Bibliographies and Works Cited pages in MS Word
- Snapshots of webpages
- Creating folders, subfolders and keyword “tags” for searching your sources
