Please note that the Suggest A Purchase form is provided as a service to students, staff, and faculty members only. In order to verify that you are a student, staff, or faculty member we require that you provide your uNID when you fill out the form. If you are a patron who is not currently affiliated with the University, you can still suggest a purchase by sending us an email. All suggestions received through this email will be reviewed, but we cannot guarantee they will be purchased, and we cannot notify you if the item arrives because our holds and notifications system is designed only to support requests that are from affiliated users who have a uNID. Alternatively, you may come to the library and speak with one of our librarians if you feel that we ought to have certain materials, and they will be able to help you with your inquiry. If you experience any trouble using this form, please contact us at 801.581.8077 for assistance.
What We Buy:
The library is able to buy most of the reasonably-priced books and audio-visual materials relevant to lower campus curriculum and research which are suggested by the University community. Journals and databases are ongoing commitments and we weigh requests for new subscriptions against the desire from other readers that existing subscriptions be continued. Materials outside Marriott Library's mission include most popular fiction, how-to books, cookbooks and other items not directly supporting University curriculum and research. The Marriott Library does accept suggestions for its small Browsing Collection, but your public library is often a better source for works that have limited academic relevance. The Marriott Library does not purchase works produced by predatory, vanity, and substandard publishers. Materials not suitable for purchase by the Library can sometimes be acquired by patrons through Interlibrary Loan, or use of the Espresso Book Machine.
