Order Requests

The Library relies heavily on the suggestions and requests of Faculty for the development of its print, non-print, and electronic collection of resources. If you would like the Library to acquire a specific book, periodical, media item, online database, or other resource for our collection, reserve a film for showing in one of your classes, receive a donation, add a link to an Internet resource on the Library web site, or borrow items from another institution, please let us know. Below is a guide for who to contact, as well as brief summaries of the processes.

Donations

Media Booking (borrowing and Media Consortium purchases)

Contacts:
Borrowing: Anne Stephan, x3231
Purchase requests: Tami Weintraub, x2967
Process: Palomar College is a member of the San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) Community College Media Consortia. SDCOE maintains a cooperative collection of videos and DVDs that may be used by faculty from any of the community colleges in the County, usually for the purpose of classroom instruction. Palomar College also purchases media for the cooperative (generally, items that would not be purchased for the Library's own collection due to cost and/or usage frequency).
To borrow items in this collection, or to find out which items are in this collection, go to Media Booking. To request items to purchase for the cooperative, contact Tami Weintraub.

Previewing Media (videos or DVDs)

Contact: Anne Stephan, x3231
Process: The Library can obtain from publishers or distributors copies of films and videos that faculty wish to preview before ordering for either the Library's collection or the Consortia.

Interlibrary Loans

If you wish to simply borrow a book or obtain articles that the Library does not own, we may be able to obtain it for you from another institution (rather than purchase copies for our permanent collection). For interlibrary loans, fill out and submit the book ILL form or periodical article ILL form.
