The Collection Management Department will give full consideration to all requests but may not acquire some materials due to non-approval by university departments, cost, or availability.
Each Shippensburg University department has its own faculty library contact from within the department, and each department also has a collection development liaison who is a library faculty member. Your contacts are listed here in the liaisons tab of this guide. These contacts can assist you in requesting library materials.
The goal of collection development at the Ezra Lehman Memorial Library is to acquire materials that support the learning and research needs of Shippensburg University students, faculty, and staff. These materials are selected to supplement, rather than duplicate, required course readings. For this reason, we avoid purchasing required course textbooks to add to the library collection in most situations.
If you have questions or comments regarding resource recommendations, please contact your library liaison for further assistance.
