Guidelines for Initiating Purchase request

Users should observe the following guidelines for initiating library materials purchase requests:

  • All library materials purchase requests related to the fields of study in the curriculum or general research of academic departments must be approved by the deans before sending them to the collection development librarian.
  • The library will encourage the faculty, students, and staff to recommend library materials for purchase, however, the decision to approve or disapprove them will rest with the Librarian and Management.
  •  Faculty may also recommend titles to be purchased from short course and research funds or to develop their own departmental resource collections from the department funds (if any). Recommendations may be initiated by completing the purchase request form sent from the library or by contacting the collections development librarian.

The collections development librarian will keep track of the collection growth in each subject area based on the collection statistics generated on regular basis or accessions register. If he observes that the collection in any particular area is lagging behind the collections in other areas, he will take his own initiative in selecting materials in that area in consultation with the faculty and the polytechnic librarian.
