Each department has a Faculty Order Coordinator who helps with selection of materials for their discipline. The order coordinator receives reviews for materials, receives requests for library materials from department faculty, attends library meetings related to collection development, and communicates information to department colleagues. You may submit requests for any type of library material - books, journals, ebooks, or audiovisual media - to your order coordinator. S/he will forward your requests to the library's acquisitions staff.

Access to this resource is available on and off-campus, but you will need to create an account while on campus to access the content from off-site.
Information is available on the Choice website on how to create alerts for reviews in your discipline - please see the User Guide and FAQ page: http://choicereviews.org/faq
You may request materials for the library to purchase and add to its collection. You may find these materials through publisher websites, advertisements, articles, reference lists, personal recommendations, or other reliable reviewing sources, including reviews that library staff provide to your library faculty representative.
You will submit all requests to your order coordinator. Please include as much information as possible about the requested item - title, author, editor, ISBN, publisher, edition, format, etc.
Once a request is received in the library, acquisitions staff will research availability and best price for the item, and the order process will begin. If the item is not available or will take an especially long time to arrive, your order coordinator will be notified and asked how to proceed.
Should you need a rush order, please indicate that information when making your request. We will do our best to expedite the order. In some cases, an interlibrary loan may be an alternative.
