The Chemistry Library is always interested in hearing from faculty, staff and students regarding resources the Library should purchase to help them with their education and research. While there may not be sufficient funds to purchase every request, knowing what our users need is important for future planning.

If you would like to make a request, please contact Jeremy Garritano and include any relevant information such as a link to the publisher web site or to Alternatively, if you receive a flyer or pamphlet in the mail or at a conference, feel free to pass it along to Jeremy via campus mail. Be sure to include your contact information so he can respond to your request.
