What books (or journals or databases) do you need? Now would be an excellent time to submit requests while I still have funds available for books and ebooks this fiscal year. For very expensive titles and for journals and databases which require annual payments, I usually can’t order them immediately but I can add them to the “wish list” and/or consider replacing a low priority title with a higher priority title. Please email your requests to Ruth Lewis [ ] or use the request forms from the library website, Recommend a purchase for the library collections (book, CD, DVD, other) OR Recommend a journal order or cancellation. Thank you!

Help us study book usage at Olin Library! We ask that you leave any books and other materials, which you do not check out, on tables or designated “Count Use” shelves on each floor. Look for the bright blue signs labeled “Count Use” near the entrance from the main staircase on each floor, in the first section of shelving on the right. Thank you for your help with this.
