Suggest Materials for the Library Collections

WKU Libraries encourage and depend upon faculty to participate actively in collection development. 

Each Academic College at WKU has its own Subject Specialist Librarian, and almost all departments have a faculty library representative. 

Feel free to contact your departmental library representative, or the Subject Specialist Librarian for your College, to suggest books, journals, or other library resources you would like to have added to the library collections. It is best to place requests during the fall semester; we attempt to place most orders during this period. 

When making decisions on the purchase of library resources, first priority is given to the support of undergraduate and graduate curricula. Contact your Subject Specialist Librarian for more information.
