Requesting Materials for the Library Collection

Library stacksAs subject experts, we welcome and encourage your requests for materials for the collection. This can include books, ebooks, videos (purchased in an online, streaming format when available), and electronic resources such as journals and databases.

We ask that (1) with the exception of Foreign Language materials, items be in English; (2) materials be directly related to the college’s curriculum; (3) items be appropriate for undergraduate learners at either the introductory, intermediate, or major level. If you are requesting a number of items at one time, please indicate the order of priority.

We encourage you to review our holdings in HillSearch before ordering.
