The Library will purchase materials to support coursework when requested as budgets allow. The Library does not, as a rule, purchase textbooks, workbooks, or lab books for general use, as these are expenditures expected of students. Financial constraints curtail textbook purchase; titles are selected to augment the educational process. Exceptions may be made if it is determined that a textbook provides background information of a reference nature. Requests may be made by filling out the Acquisitions Request Form.
