ORDERING LIBRARY MATERIALS: RUSH/REIMBURSEMENT

RUSH ORDERS

If you need a book to arrive by a certain date, please indicate that date on your order form and we will expedite processing. Although we make no guarantees, rush items are usually available within two weeks of the order. Faculty may also request pre-cataloging checkouts from library staff.

REIMBURSEMENT REQUESTS

Buying a book or video from a retail, professional, or online source and then requesting reimbursement is allowable only if the savings is significant or if the library cannot procure the item within the desired time period. In this case, reimbursement requests submitted to the library must be signed by the department chair or program director and accompanied by receipts. Any sales tax and shipping/handling costs (neither of which the library pays under normal circumstances) will be charged against the departmental allocation as well. The library will not approve reimbursement for any items already in the collection.
