Library Materials Request Process and Policy

Requesting Books (monographs) and Audio-Visual Materials

The Daemen College Library adheres to the Daemen College Collection Development Policy whenever considering new and replacement materials.  The Collection Development policy is also consulted during deselection practices. 

Either of three methods may be used to request new book and AV materials:

A “Library Materials Request Form” must be filled out.  You can either:

  1. obtain the form at the Acquisitions Department.  You should then fill out and initial the form for each title requested and return it to the library.   (If a catalog or brochure is available, please attach Request Forms and return everything to the library; or
  2. Fill out an Electronic copy of the Materials Request Form through the Materials Request Form Page.

Choice review cards may be initialed by the requestor and returned to the library.   (There is no need to complete a “Library Materials Request Form” when using a Choice review card).

 

 

 

Requesting Serial Subscriptions (journals, magazines, or yearbooks)

Fill out a “Serial Request Form” (obtainable from the Head Librarian), sign it, and return it to the Head Librarian.   Subscription to a serial title represents a continuing financial encumbrance upon Library funds for an indefinite period of time.   Therefore, following the Collection Development Policy guidelines, the evaluation of prospective serial titles is undertaken with great care.

 

 

 

Requests for library materials must conform to the Collection Development Policy.  

 

Budget Reports are sent monthly to members of the Library Committee detailing funds available for the purchase of library materials.
