Kent Library


Collection Development & Acquisitions

The Collection Development and Acquisitions Unit is responsible for coordinating the process of ordering and adding books, media, and other items to the library’s physical and electronic collections.

How do I request that the library purchase materials for the collection?

For general questions about library acquisitions contact:

Each academic department appoints a library liaison that serves as a communication channel between departments and the library for purchase of materials to add to the library collection. Each department also has a librarian assigned to it that can assist with acquisition related questions.

Materials with recurring costs cannot be acquired using the Carrie Woodburn Johnson Endowment.
