It is important to us that we have relevant and useful resources for students and faculty in the Library. We welcome your requests and suggestions for additions – books, eBooks, videos, magazines and journals - to the Library collection. All requests must fall within our Collection Development Policy (PDF 128KB) and are subject to budgetary considerations. If we cannot find or afford something that you would like us to add, we will work with you to find a suitable substitution.

Before making a recommendation...

  • Check the Library Catalogue to ensure that the item is not available in the collection
  • Perform a search in the Library Databases to ensure that the article is not available in our electronic resources.

Purchase Request Form

The Library welcomes gifts and accepts them with the donor’s understanding that the materials are evaluated by the same standards as purchased items. Staff time for processing, age of material, format, topic, physical condition and copyright are considered when evaluating donated items for inclusion in the collection.

We are not able to accept donations of instructor review copies of textbooks, workbooks/lab manuals/study guides, case studies, photocopies, and items marked up with pen, pencil or highlighter or otherwise damaged. The Library has the right to discard any donations that are not suitable for the collection. Donated items that will not be incorporated into the collection will be given to another library, donated to charity, made available for free to the college community, or discarded. If we are unable to include your donated item and you wish it to be returned to you, kindly let us know. Also, please let us know if you would like a tax receipt for your donation by speaking with the staff member when you donate the item.
