B. Faculty Recommendations

Faculty recommendations are honored unless the cost or subject matter of the item is significantly beyond the scope of regular library purchases, or the item duplicates materials already owned or readily available. In some cases, the Library Director discusses the recommendation with the professor and makes the final decision. In all cases, titles are purchased and processed as library copies. Under special circumstances, and with the Library Director's approval, a particular title may be located in a faculty office.
