The Library welcomes suggestions from our users. Anyone in the CSULA community can recommend a new book to be purchased by the Library. Although the Library reserves the right to make all purchase decisions, it will try to fulfill as many appropriate requests as possible, budget permitting. Appropriate books should be academic in nature, support the curriculum, and be reasonably priced. Highest priority will always be given to curricular needs. Popular or highly specialized titles are lower priority.


: (OPTIONAL) : If you want to be notified concerning the status of your request, enter your email address.
: For all requests, please provide as much of the following bibliographic information as you know, including:
  • TITLE (including subtitle)
  • EDITION (if it affects content)
  • SERIES (if any)

  • ALSO, we recommended that you add a brief statement concerning WHY you are making this request, including information about your relationship to Cal State L.A. (i.e., are you a student, a member of our faculty, a local high school teacher, a member of the community, etc.).
