Requesting a Purchase

Please send an email to with information about the item that you would like the library to purchase. 

As the collection policy is developed over the course of the 2018-2019 academic year after which we can provide clear and transparent information about new acquisitions. For now, our policy is that we invite suggestions from faculty, staff and students for material that has a direct connection to the learning continuum. 

Community Collection

Submit your request here

Each member of the Olin community has the opportunity to request one book, CD, DVD, or LP/EP record to be added to the library collection.

Community Collection items have small round labels to make them easier to find in the library stacks. They are also searchable in the library catalog, here:

We review submissions periodically, and notify you when the item is available for your community members to check out.
