Book Purchase Request
Use this form to request a book be purchased for the libraries' collections, or contact the collection manager in your subject area.
A library patron may request a book that is currently checked out to another borrower. Once a request is placed, the borrower who currently has the book is sent a system-generated letter to let him/her know that the due date has been changed. At this time the current borrower is given a two week due date (unless the original due date is sooner than 2 weeks) to allow him/her to finish using the book.
Once the book is returned, the person who requested the book is notified that the item is available for pickup.
To request a book: Search for the book in InfoKat Discovery. Click on 'Availability' link. Click on 'Sign-in for more options'. click on 'Request'. Fill out out 'Details of title you requested:' *fields are required. Click orange 'Request' button to complete the request. You will be notified via email once the book is available for pick-up.
NOTE: Recalled (requested) items not returned by the new due date will accrue a recall overdue fine of $2.00 per day. Please respond to these notices promptly.
Items that have been recalled may not be renewed.
If you are unable to locate an item that should be on the shelf but is not, inquire at your Circulation Desk. Library personnel will search for the item and notify you if the item is found.
