The University Libraries are piloting a Collection Development book allocation program to provide additional funds to newly hired full-time faculty. These funds provide each eligible faculty member with a one-time award of up to $1,000 to order new books or media for the permanent collection during their first year at the University (awards will be dependent on available funds and the number of new eligible faculty). The funds cannot be used for journals, subscriptions, or items with recurring costs.
A complete request list, within the announced funding amount, should be submitted via email, e.g. an excel or worksheet file list, by December 31st to the Libraries Subject Liaison representing your department (please see list below). Award submissions will only be accepted from September to January of the specified school year. This year’s funds will cover full-time faculty hired during the 2021 calendar year, as represented in the fall new faculty orientation guide.
For more information contact your library subject liaisons (https://guides.lib.odu.edu/specialists).
For every department on campus, there is a library liaison within the department, and there is a bibliographer in the library to assist with managing the collections for that discipline.
