The library collection exists to support the Ursuline College curriculum. In order to do that effectively, the library welcomes the assistance and cooperation of the school's faculty. The library encourages suggestions from any faculty member about resources to purchase. This is best accomplished by completing the appropriate purchase request form (see below) and submitting it through the faculty chairperson or the departmental liaison. The library also enlists the faculty's help in weeding outdated materials from the collection. Book Request Form
