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Traditional textbooks (so designated by their publishers), as these go out of date quickly and are often very costly.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.
For many years the library carried both Choice Cards and Choice Reviews Online. The number of cards returned by faculty has declined greatly and no longer justifies the additional expense. The new web interface, Choice Reviews offers many useful features, including a virtual "cardstack" and the ability to submit orders to the Goucher College library.
To use any personalized features, you'll need to create an account. For details, see the Choice Reviews FAQ
After logging into your account, you can email single titles or lists to: Bookorder@goucher.edu
Your library liaison will be happy to walk you through the process; just call or email them.
These well-known review sources also publish lengthy, authoritative articles and commentary on current affairs.
