Library Acquisitions via Library Funds

Library Business Office Phone: 494-2895
Responsibilities:
The dean of libraries is responsible for the purchase, receipt & approval for payment of all library materials purchased with library funds. Procedures will be in accordance with general university policies
Cataloging:
Books cataloged by the library are considered capital purchases. Books purchased on contract or grant funds will not be cataloged unless permitted by the contract or grant funding agency. All books purchased with university controlled funds, whether or not cataloged, are the property of the university and cannot be disposed of without approval of the dean of libraries.

If a department wishes to have a book cataloged, please work with the Librarian in your school or department. If you do not have a Librarian in you area, you may contact the Libraries Business Office (42895) and they will put you in contact with someone in the cataloging unit
