Rogers Library librarians and staff will periodically contact you or your department regarding specific weeding projects, and we appreciate your assistance at those times.

Please feel free to contact your liaison at any time if you have thoughts regarding the de-acquisitioning of any items in our collection (mongraphs, microfilm, electronic materials, periodicals, etc).

Academic Departments & Collection Development

We rely heavily on the teaching faculty of FMU and your academic expertise to select worthy print and electronic resources for our collection. We encourage you to submit purchase requests and help build our collection together!


Purchase Request

Fill out a request form when there is an item (book, journal, database) that you would like the library to consider for purchase.

Preference is given to material that directly supports the curriculum.


** Rogers Library does not purchase textbooks for reserves or circulation. 



If you would like your students to use a textbook, be sure to notify the Patriot Bookstore on campus  early.


Database & eResource Trials

When considering an electronic resource for purchase, Rogers Library will often acquire a time-limited trial. 

See a list of our current database trials

Use the comments box on our trial page to indicate the database that you examined and how it might be beneficial for your program or comment on any drawbacks about that particular resource. 

Feedback is extremely valuable when determining which databases FMU will purchase, so thank you for your input.
