Material requests may take several weeks to process. Purchased materials first go through processing and cataloging before they can be used in the classroom.

What happens next?
Your material request form will be forwarded to your department chair or dean via e-mail. Once they receive the notification e-mail, they will either approve or deny your request.
Will I be notified if my request is sent to purchase?
Yes. You will receive an e-mail from the resource development librarian when your request is received, then a follow up e-mail notifying you of the action taken by the library.
My request was approved by my department chair or dean. Does this mean that my materials will be purchased?
No. Department chair or dean approval does not guarantee that your requested material will be purchased by the library. The final decision rests on the resource development librarian and/or director of the library, resource development policy and available funding.
