Disclaimer: All requests for new Library materials will be reviewed and prioritized according to the UTEP Library’s Collection Development Policies and within the scope of the Library's budget according to funds available for each subject discipline.
Lead-time for ordering and processing of new Library materials:
Foreign materials and books older than five years should be requested by January 15 of the calendar year.
Non-book materials such as journals, databases, and videos should be requested at least 6-12 weeks in advance of when they will be needed. Some of these formats, such as databases and journals, require more extensive review (in terms of the budget); others, such as videos, require more lead time to acquire, especially if they are not available from the Library’s standard sources.
For streaming video requests, allow sufficient lead time for the Library to source, negotiate and license the digital streaming rights, if available. This process can take from six months to one year. Extra lead time will be needed for re-formatting or accessibility enhancements such as transcripts or closed-captioning.
Publications in stock with the Library’s major book vendors can be ordered up until June 15 of the calendar year.
For questions, contact Nancy Hill, Associate Library Director for Technical Services.
Textbooks and other course materials should be ordered through the UTEP Bookstore.
Course Packs may be ordered via the UTEP Print*Copy*Mail Solutions or UTEP Bookstore (XanEdu).
If you want to request *individual* articles, books, or other publications for your own educational or personal use, please use the UTEP Library’s Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Service.
The UTEP Library can create a customized online Research Guide (a/k/a "LibGuides") for your course. Research Guides are specially designed websites that include links to course-relevant library materials and direct access to other resources deemed most suitable for research and instruction in keeping with the course theme or specific assignments. Examples of Research Guides created for UTEP Courses include:
Nursing Informatics: NURS 4303
ENGL 1311 - Gilden (Peace and Middle East)
PAD 5361: Political Economy of Borders
The University Library can provide bibliographic instruction session(s) for your students to better aquaint them with library resources and best practice for doing library research. As an instructor, you have the option to "embed" or include a librarian on a discussion board within your course shell in the role of teaching assistant or instructional designer. For more information about bibliographic (library) instruction or embedded librarianship, please contact Harvey Castellano, Assistant Library Director for Instruction and Information Literacy Services.
