Library Policies

Policies regarding the Evelyn S. Field Library.

Textbook Purchasing Policy

1.    The book must have a cost of $35 or more

2.    The book must be a required textbook for a course with twenty-five or more students

3.    Students may be split across multiple sections

4.    Requests made after the start of the semester may be delayed due to processing and availability

**Should a faculty member request the library purchase a textbook that does not meet the above criteria, the liaison librarian may work with the faculty member and department chair to get approval to purchase the textbook from the department’s library materials fund line. These texts will not be purchased from the bookstore and thus may not be immediately available at the start of a semester.

Find out more about course reserves on the Faculty Resources page on the library's website.
