University Library

Purchase Requests

Suggest an Item for Purchase

We strive to keep our collections current and relevant to the St. Cloud State community. While funds are limited, we encourage you to suggest additions to our collection. We will evaluate requests based on the Library's Collection Development Criteria and the availability of funds. We prioritize materials that support instruction and research by members of the University community.

Books, DVDs & Streaming Videos

Recommend books, ebooks, or DVDs by using the Library Resource Suggestion Form.

Faculty can submit requests for streaming videos through the St. Cloud State Kanopy website. We are unable to lease or purchase streaming video for individual use at this time.

Journals and Databases

Journals and databases carry yearly costs with cost increases, or are expensive, making it difficult to accommodate new requests. We keep a list of requests that we refer to when funds become available. Please send suggestions to

If you have questions about your resource request, please email for assistance.
