After the college administration determines the library budget for a given year, the Learning Resources Committee makes a study of departmental needs for books and periodicals. Based on this study, the committee makes recommendations to the faculty concerning how the books and periodical allocation will be divided among the academic departments. Upon faculty approval of the committee’s recommendations, the allocations are thus allocated for the given year.
Faculty in each department may recommend new items to their department chair for approval, who will then forward said requests to the library director. Periodical requests should be provided to the library director by September 15. Order information and book requests should be provided to the library director by December 1. Book request cards or printed lists may be submitted.
