Individual program chairs are given a budget amount for the academic year. If you are a program chair of a program with multiple professors, please coordinate the purchasing process among your program area, and then fill out the form available here: http://goo.gl/forms/XA2hcwUpux.
Acquisitions are made during the Spring semester, and will be made available the following Fall semester. Leftover program budget funds will be spent according to peer reviewed reference materials in that program area at the librarians’ discretion.
All reoccurring requests (subscriptions, standing orders, renewals) are reviewed in May and are funded before other requests. Many times, these requests are purchased through additional budget items. Standing orders specific to programs are purchased from the program budget.
If you would like to purchase items that will remain in your possession/ your department’s possession indefinitely, please speak to your Division Chair about purchasing those items
