Following trends in the greater academic library community, the Goucher College Library no longer allocates its materials budget by departments.
What prompted this change?
The library welcomes and encourages your purchase requests and will (usually) buy whatever you submit, EXCEPT for:
Traditional textbooks (so designated by their publishers), as these go out of date quickly and are often very costly. We will support requests for nontextbook monographs in support of your courses.
We value your input, so PLEASE keep ordering titles that support your courses and research.
Ordering for a new course? Let us know so we can use the Flowers Fund, designated to support new courses.
THERE IS NO LONGER A DEADLINE FOR ORDERS - but please be aware that it can take up to a month to obtain and process physical items (even longer if we order from vendors overseas).
Use the Library Purchase Request Form to order books, videos, music scores -- and their electronic versions.
