Collection development

The Library relies on consultation with Faculty for its collection development. If you have any questions about collection development and the ordering of library material please contact your Liaison Librarian .

The Library orders all types of material that are needed by Faculty: books, CDs, DVDs, videos, kits, etc.

Note that for videos and DVDs we must buy Public Performance Rights for them so this can affect the cost.

Send us a list of your requests by email, hard copy or circled items in a catalogue.

If possible, please include the following information:

  • title
  • author/editor
  • original publisher
  • copyright date
  • edition and/or volume
  • ISBN and price (indicating Canadian or U.S. funds).

When the item arrives in the Library you will be notified.


You can submit library requests at any time throughout the year.  Please allow approximately two months for new library materials to become available.
