Library Collection Services for Faculty

The Collection Services Department is responsible for acquisitions, cataloging, subscriptions, and the processing of library materials.

Routing Library Materials

New issues of journals and newsletters from the library collection may be routed to  full-time faculty members on request.  To arrange for routing, or to stop or suspend an existing routing, please contact your Library Liaison  or Jeanne Hanrahan.

Routed materials remain part of the library collection, and should be returned to the library promptly.  Routed journal issues are checked out to the recipient, who will continue to receive periodic email reminders until they are returned.  All routed materials will be placed in faculty mailboxes.

If more than one faculty member requests the same publication, new issues are routed in the order the requests were received. The library staff cannot ensure these materials will reach the next recipient in a timely manner. We will attempt to assist you in resolving problems.

Looseleaf releases are not routed.  However, many looseleafs include a highlights pamphlet, which can be routed (and need not be returned).  Your library liaison can also assist you will setting up email alerts for  new CCH or BNA releases, as well as new issues of many journals.

Library routing is not intended as a substitute for individual faculty subscriptions.  If you have a need for long-term access to library materials in your office, please discuss the available options with your Library Liaison
