Suggest an Item

Grace Library uses a variety of sources to select materials for its collection, with a focus on faculty-driven requests, as well as reviews, subject biographies, and professional literature. Selection criteria include relevance to curriculum, quality and authority of the content, and cost-effectiveness.

The library prioritizes the acquisition of materials in electronic format over print resources. As a standing rule, the library will not purchase print versions of titles already held in electronic format. The library does not regularly purchase dictionaries or encyclopedias, as they are often expensive and do not offer the depth of coverage appropriate for students doing research.

If you would like to suggest an item that you think should be added to Grace Library's collection, please fill out our Suggestion Form. Library staff will consider it in the frame of the criteria listed above.
