Special Instructions

To request a new periodical subscription, please complete this form which will be forwarded to the Collections Librarian. Bear in mind that journal subscriptions represent a substantial ongoing financial commitment on the part of the Library.  Would interlibrary loan or pay-per-view access meet your and your students’ research needs?

As a rule, requests are reviewed once per semester; however, please indicate in Question 4 if you need a more immediate response.

For assistance with completion of this form please contact Joan Campbell at or 725-3285.
