Policies and Procedures for Requests from Suggestion Box 

Specific Title Requests:

Specific titles under $100 that are requested by individuals associated with Emporia State and White Library including faculty, staff, students, and Kansas Resident Card holders, will be purchased at the discretion of the Head of Collection Development who will determine the appropriate fund code for the purchase.  The selector responsible for that fund code will be notified of the purchase.  When the title arrives in the library, the requestor will be informed, if contact information was provided with the original request.  If, for some reason, the title is not purchased, the Head of Collection Development will inform the requestor of the reasons behind the decision to not purchase the work.

The Head of Collection Development will consider specific titles over the cost of $100 that are requested with input from the appropriate selector as determined by the selected fund code.  If the title is purchased, when the title arrives in the library, the requestor will be informed, if contact information was provided with the original request.  If, for some reason, the title is not purchased, the Head of Collection Development will inform the requestor of the reasons behind the decision to not purchase the work.  

General Subject Requests:

If a general subject request is made and not specific titles, the Head of Collection Development will forward the request to the selector of the appropriate subject area.  The selector will then be responsible for both fulfilling the request and letting the requestor know of the titles purchased or notifying the requestor as to the reasons that the request was not filled.
