Info for Faculty: Purchase Ideas

The Info for Faculty page is designed to help connect PLNU full-time and adjunct faculty members with the resources, contact information, and other materials they need most frequently from the library.

Search for it first

Before recommending a book or periodical for purchase, please check WorldCat, Ryan Library's online catalog, to see if it is already in the library collection.

Recommend it for purchase

We appreciate recommendations from you on resources to purchase for the Ryan Library collection. These suggestions will be taken into consideration when making purchasing decisions. Please email the Research Help Desk to suggest a book, periodical or database for consideration.

Faculty, please note: This form should not be used for Departmental Library requests. Those requests should be submitted through your library liaison. 

Liaison Librarians

The librarians at Ryan Library serve as liaisons to specific departments/schools at PLNU to provide support in a variety of ways. Contact your librarian for these or other needs:

  • schedule research-related instruction for your students
  • request books and other materials for library purchase
  • seek help with discipline-specific, library-related questions
