Collection Management

Suggesting a Purchase or Trial

We encourage faculty to participate in the development of collections by contacting the Collections Management Coordinator. The library is able to subscribe to few new electronic and physical resources. To request a new one-time purchase, journal, or database, please fill out the Suggest a Purchase form. Contact the Collections Management Coordinator to request a list of materials, journals or databases in your area. E-mail mejames@ualr.edu or call 501.569.8816.

Requesting a Library Holdings Review

The Collections Management Coordinator prepares library holdings reviews for new courses and programs proposed by the faculty. The Graduate and Undergraduate Councils require these reviews. Send requests for library holdings review statements by campus mail or e-mail along with a course description, syllabus, and bibliography if available. Typically the review is prepared within 10 working days. E-mail mejames@ualr.edu or call 501.569.8816 for more information.

Donating Library Materials

The library accepts donations of books, journals, and other materials for its collections. Gifts that are in good condition may be added to the collection if they meet the library’s selection criteria.  All gifts are tax deductible, but the library is not allowed to give a statement of value because the IRS considers it an interested party. Include a name and address with your gift and the library will acknowledge that a donation has been made. E-mail mejames@ualr.edu or call 501.569.8816 for more information.
