I'm a faculty member. Can I request that the library buy a book, periodical, or database subscription?

We rely heavily on the teaching faculty of FMU and your academic expertise to select worthy print and electronic resources for our collection. So we encourage you to submit purchase requests and help build our collection together!

Please either email your liaison or use this form when there is an item (book, journal, database) that you would like the library to consider for purchase. Preference is given to material that directly supports the curriculum. We do not purchase textbooks.

Important! Check with your library liaison or the head of your academic department regarding your specific department's purchase approval process. Some departments automatically approve all choices, but other department heads will want to personally approve your requests.
