Today faculty are not assigned weekly office hours in the library. The Library doesn’t even have a Reference Desk! But collaboration between the faculty and library is essential to the core objective of the library: to support the curriculum of the University. That’s why we need faculty input by making recommendations for acquisitions of books, videos, periodicals, electronic resources, and any other material to which students need to have access.
First, check the OPAC to see if we already have what you would recommend.
Go to the library’s web site and Search for books and more in the Darling Library.
Ways to make a request:
- Publisher’s catalog or flyer. Circle your recommendations and send to the attention of Sarah Kimakwa in the library.
- Use an online request form. You can also print this form out and send it to Sarah.
- Contact Sarah directly.
ISBN or ISSN
Any other pertinent information (i.e., specific format, rush order)
If you have any questions, please refer to the Collection Development Policy or contact Sarah Kimakwa, Acquisitions Manager, or Robin Hartman, Library Director
