Request Materials for Purchase

Faculty may request that the Library purchase or subscribe to materials for research or teaching. We are currently only accepting requests for digital content, as the Library building is currently closed during the pandemic. 


  • Course Reserves

    Faculty may place course-related materials on reserve at the library. To place materials on Reserves complete the Course Reserves Request form.  To place faculty owned materials on Reserve, contact the Circulation Desk at 718.982.4011. Fill out the Reserves Request form for titles currently owned by CSI Library, that require transfer from Stacks to Reserves, and for titles the Library needs to purchase. The library purchases textbooks from the college’s campus bookstore. The bookstore will need to be contacted, in addition to the Library, for new purchases at 718.982.3036.
