Emmanuel d'Alzon Library will make every effort to purchase materials that support our undergraduate and graduate curricula. Some departments have specific policies in place for ordering library materials. For instance, some department chairs place all orders for their department, while other department chairs allow all department members to request materials through their Library department liaison. Please check with your department chair.
To request a purchase of either print or electronic items (including streaming video), please submit the Purchase Request Form or contact your liaison. Orders usually take 4-6 weeks to become available, but please let us know if you need a rush order.
Books on order are searchable in our Classic Catalog. Order information appears in capital letters, and you will see the designation "On Order" or "Received."
Once a book or movie is added to the collection, a location and call number will indicate where to find the item in the Library.
