  • to provide access to information which is outside the scope of present instruction.
  • to provide access to the public to resources and services.

Requesting Materials for the Library Collection

The LBCC Library accepts requests for purchase of new library materials that are in support of the curriculum content and/or educational needs of employees and students. 

Due to the unique nature of the textbook publishing market, requests for the Reserves collection are handled with a different procedure. Please see the Reserves tab of this guide to learn how to get a textbook added to this collection.

To submit a purchase request, please complete the following form. Let us know if you would like us to prioritize the purchase of digital editions, when available.

We also welcome requests for ongoing subscriptions such as journals and databases. Subscription decisions and purchases are done once per year, in Spring term.

If you have any questions about resource purchases, contact Richenda Hawkins (hawkinr@linnbenton.edu).
