1) Search the web catalog to see if the title you want is on order. If not, you'll need to log in to your account to submit your suggestion.

Guidelines

  • You can submit up to five suggestions per month.
  • You will receive a response regarding the status of your request once the suggestion has been reviewed by staff.
  • For rare, out-of-print, and specialized titles, search our inter-library loan service LINK+
  • The library automatically purchases all new titles by these authors and contributors. These titles can generally be found in the library catalog two to three months prior to publication. You may still submit suggestions for titles by these authors, which will help the library know how many copies to order, but holds will not be placed on your behalf for newly published titles by these authors.
