We are happy to receive suggestions from UMBC students, faculty, and staff! All submissions will be forwarded to the appropriate library liaison and then Collection Management for consideration. Please include as much information as possible.

Note for Faculty: If a book needs to be purchased for course reserves, please don't enter it here. Instead, place the book on reserve through the course reserves website. Library Circulation or Library Media staff will order unowned items directly.
