Form: Purchase recommendation

Patrons may see purchasing delays in fall 2023

Library staff will move into the renovated building during November and December, 2023, which may affect the purchase recommendation process: 

  • Physical materials may see processing delays.
  • Ebooks and streaming videos will see little disruption.

We anticipate a return to normal service by mid-January, 2024. 

UVA faculty, staff and students may use this form to recommend purchasing materials for the Library's collection, or to request purchasing items for use in course reserves.

For more information please refer to the Library's collection development policy or contact the Collection Development and Management team with any questions.

If you have problems using this form, please email your recommendation to We are currently experiencing some intermittent problems with the form and are working to resolve the issue.
