Recommending Material for Purchase

Information on how you can recommend material for purchase for De Chastelain Library, DkIT.

Teaching and research staff are encouraged to actively participate in the Library's Collection Development.  When you are preparing a new module or programme let us know so that we can help you to identify up-to-date and relevant sources of information. We recommend that you look at our existing collection and determine what we already have so that you can make an informed choice about what is really needed.

Inspection copies will also help in your assessment of the most appropriate text.

The Library uses Coursebuilder Reading Lists when deciding what material to purchase. Staff can also recommend specific titles and resources through their Library Subject Support Team, by emailing acquisitions@dkit.ie, or using our online request form.
