Faculty Guide to the Libraries: Purchase Requests

Library Purchase Requests

The College of Wooster Libraries have a centralized budget for purchase of Library materials, and we welcome your recommendations for materials to be added to the Libraries' collections!  All requests for books, media, journals or databases should go through your Subject Liaison Librarian, and should indicate how the purchase would support curriculum or research in your area.

Purchase recommendations may be easily submitted through our GOBI online book ordering system, by email, or campus mail. For your convenience, your Subject Librarian can set you up to to receive regular GOBI notifications by email of newly published books in your area.  To clearly indicate the anticipated need for a book purchase, please include with your recommendation one of three priorities:

  • 1--We should have a copy in the Wooster collection
  • 2--An available copy in CONSORT is adequate for our needs
  • 3--At least four available copies in OhioLINK are adequate for our needs
