Request Details

If this material is needed for Reserve, please enter:

*  Duplicate? If Colby and/or Bates already own this title, should we duplicate it in Bowdoin's collection? (Most books may be borrowed via CBBcat within 2-3 days.)
(Search CBBcat)
* Ebooks: Ebooks are sold for use by either "one-user" or "unlimited users" at a time. Should we order the ebook if access is limited to only one user at a time?

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.
