Purchase Requests

Marquand librarians and selectors (bibliographers) are very happy to receive requests to purchase new or out-of-print monographs, new periodical titles, or suggestions to purchase or have cataloged subscription-only and free online content. Requests submitted via the online form will be routed to us if within Marquand’s collecting scope. Please first consult OCLC’s WorldCat to determine the availability of a title outside of Princeton, which may be available for loan via Borrow Direct or Interlibrary Loan. However, important titles of a scholarly nature that we lack and may have overlooked, are welcomed. Marquand regularly and actively pursues rare or costly items to add to the collection, especially if it will support the library’s collection policy and relates to teaching potential now and in the future.
