The library adds materials to its collection based on the Collection Development Policy. Majority of the items are purchased and donations are accepted based on the Gifts Policy.
Requesting materials for purchase:
Each department receives an allocation from the acquisitions budget. Materials may be purchased as long as funds are available in the department's allocation. Each department appoints a liaison (except for Business where the dean acts as the liaison) and requests for library materials should be sent to the liaison for approval. The departmental liaison will then forward the requests to their assigned library liaison. Liaisons are listed in the chart below.
An online request form for materials is also available. Please print the completed form using landscape orientation. Materials requested for purchase using the departmental allocations should be in support of teaching/curricular activities in the department.
The library also accepts general requests for purchases; General requests may be sent directly to the Collections and Electronic Resources Librarian (Kathleen Baril, firstname.lastname@example.org, x2188). General requests that are relevant to research/teaching program at ONU are purchased when funds are available.
Please visit the Heterick for Faculty and Staff Libguide for a list of the departmental liaisons.
