ORU Library Purchase Request Form

Recommendations for the purchase of materials may be submitted in more than one way.

  1. By filling out this web purchase request form
  2. By filling out a request form available from the Acquisitions Department

If you have not already done so, please go to Library Online Catalog to verify that the library does not already own the title before submitting a request for purchase.

Decisions to purchase are made by librarians on the basis of curriculum needs, relation to the existing collections, available money, etc.

A record is added to the Library Catalog as soon as an order is placed by Acquisitions, and the status is updated as the book or information about it is received.

To request purchase of materials to be included in the ORU Library collection, please provide the following information.

Boxes with labels in bold type are required and must be completed in order for the transaction to be successful.
