Make Recommendations for Library Resources

Posted by lrath on December 1, 2006

Is there a section of the library collection that you think is underdeveloped? Would you like to have more resources available on a certain subject? Have you used a resource at another library or at work that you think would support the curriculum at Baruch? Have you heard of a new resource and think it would be a great addition to the library? Tell us what you think by posting a comment about your experiences with the library’s print and electronic collections.

The library purchases books, reports, electronic databases and multimedia materials based on Baruch’s curriculum, reviews in professional literature and by library faculty, faculty requests, and student requests. Why not make a recommendation of your own? (Please note that a recommendation does not guarantee a purchase, but the library will carefully consider your requests.)
