Raynor Memorial Libraries offers more than 1.8 million volumes, hundreds of research databases, computer access, laptops on loan, a multimedia
collection, group study spaces, 24-hour access and library staff members who help researchers from around the world.
To facilitate collection building, each academic department has an appointed faculty library representative and
a corresponding subject liaison librarian, who manages an annual discretionary fund for the purchase of books and other resources. Consult with your department’s
faculty representative about the procedures for placing requests.
Faculty may request to license streaming videos for classroom use via the Streaming Video
Request Form. Please note that it is the Libraries’ policy, due to cost constraints, not to license feature films for streaming. Faculty members are encouraged
to have their students use Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc., for such viewing.
Faculty may request new subscriptions via the Resource Request Form. Requests must be endorsed
by the faculty library representative and submitted to the subject liaison librarian. Requests are considered periodically throughout the year.
