Order a book or media for the Library


Each School/College (and in the case of the College of Arts & Sciences, each Department) is given an allocation each year from which to place orders for monographs (books) or media (DVD, Video, CD, etc).

Any faculty member may place an order for a book or media to be added to the library collection, but should check with the Liaison of their School/College/Department to determine if a procedure is in place for submitting its orders. Some Departments allocate their library budget allotment among their faculty members and closely track the spending.

Students, Staff, Others

Individuals may also place a book or media order request using the Book and Media Request form on the right. If you are not a current student, faculty or staff member please email reference@drake.edu with your request. Please contact the Library Acquisitions Department at 515-271-2927 for information about currently accepted media formats.
