ORDERING MATERIALS FOR THE LIBRARY
The Cataloging Unit of the Library Technology Services Department works closely with Acquisitions personnel to process and make available all materials added to the library's collections. We encourage faculty to actively participate in building library collections. Each year, the library designates funds for each program to purchase books and materials. Faculty representatives in each college receive notification regarding the amount of funding available for each program and the deadline for placing orders. All funds not encumbered by the ordering deadline revert to the library for collection development.
Order cards are available in the Library Acquisitions area. Cards may be requested by calling the main Acquisitions number (ext. 2354).
To assist us in processing your orders in an efficient manner, when filling out order forms, please adhere to the following procedures as closely as possible:
The Library receives titles on approval from one of its vendors. Titles from a variety of disciplines are shipped immediately after publication. Preset profiles help limit these shipments to titles that support our curriculum and programs. New Approval Plan titles are available for review in the Technical Services Dept. (112C). For questions regarding the plan, contact your Library Liaison or Michele Hall at (Ann.Hall@tamucc.edu) or ext. 2413.
