Collection Development

The Library welcomes material recommendations by faculty, students, staff and other patrons.  Recommendations are vital in helping the library select the best possible materials to support the teaching and research activities of the university. All recommendations are considered and a final decision for each recommendation is made using the guidelines of the library’s collection development policy.

Use the Purchase request form to make material recommendations and send the completed form as an email attachment to either the department’s liaison (see list below) or directly to the Acquisitions/Collection Development librarian, (moreyh@cookman.edu).

The library subscribes to several useful selection tools including :


The library has designated a librarian to act as a liaison to serve as the principal contact for each academic department (department chairs and faculty) for information about library policies, procedures and services. The liaisons are also responsible for staying in communication with the department chairs and faculty about selecting books, journals and other materials for purchase to build the library's collection.

Questions or comments about the liaison librarian program may be directed to Dr. Tasha Lucas-Youmans, Dean of the Library / Chief Librarian.
