Acquisitions & Collection Assessment

The Library Acquisitions and Collection Assessment Department (LACA) is responsible for selecting, and acquiring all library materials, including books, journals, media and electronic resources. The department coordinates the work of academic department faculty (faculty book chairs) and librarians, who cooperatively select individual titles. Additionally we assess the value of library materials throughout the year, monitoring usage, current relevance, and pricing.


If you are interested in having the library purchase a book, video or periodical, please contact your faculty book chair. You may communicate your order request in any form you prefer – email, link to a web page, print copy, etc. – or you may use one of the forms below.
