Would the library buy this?


Did you know you can suggest that the library buy a specific title and place it on hold for you?  We welcome all suggestions from Canisius students, faculty and staff and take these purchase suggestions seriously.  

There are two ways you can suggest a title. The first is to write your suggestion down on the suggestion slips located on the main library desk and drop it in the box.  Include as much information as you can and write your name on the slip if you would like the title held for you.

The second way is to submit the online form.  

Note in the “other information” box that you would like to have the title held for you.
