Recommending an Item for Purchase

If there is an item the Temple University Libraries do not have, you may recommend that we purchase it for the collections. Before doing so, please search Diamond, the online catalog of holdings, to verify the Libraries do not own the item. 

To recommend a purchase, please fill out the form linked below. Although we cannot purchase every item requested by our users, particularly in the case of periodicals, your request will be carefully reviewed by one of our subject specialists and we will notify you of our decision.
