Library Book Purchase Recommendation Form
This service is provided to Skyline College faculty only. Please provide as much information as you can and note that your request is subject to the Library's budgetary constraints. We regret that the Library is unable to purchase required course textbooks. Please contact your publisher’s representative for a desk copy of your textbook(s), and remember to also request a second copy for the Library’s reserve collection. If you do not receive a second copy for the Library, please contact the Director of Auxiliary Services (650-358-6782), who will follow up with the publisher’s representative.
NOTE: Requests to purchase audio-visual materials (DVD’s, CD’s, etc.) should be directed separately to your Division Dean. If purchased by your Division, faculty may keep them within the Division for use in classes or may place them on reserve in the Library so students can watch them individually or in small groups. Do not use this form to request audio-visual purchases.
