Acquisition Request Form

Current Southwestern University faculty, students, and staff use this form to request that the library purchase a book, DVD, CD, music score, or digital resource. Submitting the form will email your request to the appropriate library liaison.

Please check the Voyager Online Catalog to see if the library already has an item before requesting it. If you need help locating an item that is already listed in Voyager, contact the Circulation Desk at 512-863-1563.

Processing Information [required]

In light of budgetary constraints that are especially tight this year, please prioritize your request into one of three categories: urgent; non-urgent but essential; or recommended. Some requests may be held for a period of time until funds are available, but all requests are important to ensure that the library’s collection does not ultimately have a gap in holdings.
