Faculty Services: Library Acquisition Requests

Library Acquisition Requests

The Library welcomes purchase suggestions from faculty and academic departments.  

Course readings added to your Leganto Reading List are automatically considered for purchase. There is no need to submit a separate request when you use a Leganto Reading List.  

Requests for purchases outside of Leganto lists can be emailed to library@trentu.ca. Please include any details you have about the resource and explain how it supports Trent's teaching and research. 

Omni and Leganto can be used to discover material already available at the Trent Library. Please check to see if the resource is already owned by the Library before submitting an email request.  

All purchase requests are forwarded to a Liaison Librarian for approval. Priority is given to purchase requests for course readings. 

Library Resource Management Guidelines 

For more information on Library selection criteria, see the Library Resources Management Guidelines. A review of Library acquisitions workflows and resource management guidelines is forthcoming.
