Dacus Library Ordering Procedures
Winthrop Faculty can submit requests for books and journals in several ways.
When filling out the request card, the most important information is the title and the author. Also important is the publisher, cost, and year of publication. If the ISBN information is available, please include this also. When requesting items from small or obscure publishers, please attach an advertisement or citation with your request.
The library may not be able to order all requests due to budgetary constraints, therefore, please prioritize your requests:
Each department is allocated an amount for book and audio-visual purchases. Within each department, a faculty member is designated to coordinate requests and act as a liaison with the library. Faculty members should submit requests to this liaison, who will forward them to the Monographs and A-V Acquisitions Department.
The library also maintains a library general fund for reference materials. Faculty with recommendations for material to be purchased from this fund should send suggestions to the Monographs and A-V Acquisitions Librarian.
The library does not allocate funds to departments for serials subscriptions because of the on-going commitment created by these subscriptions. Requests for new serial titles can be given directly to the Serials Librarian for review and consideration.
Winthrop students can also submit requests for books and journals.
