Libraries face a dilemma: the number of books, journals, and other information resources available to offer to their patrons is growing faster than their acquisitions budgets. Decisions about which new materials to add in a given year are influenced by a number of factors, not the least of which are whether they are aware of the existence of a resource and the value that resource would bring to those who rely on the library. Librarians often appreciate the input of users in gathering the information they need to make those evaluations. There is no one right way to share information about a particular journal with a library. Some institutions have formal procedures for submitting acquisition requests, others rely on regular communication between subject area librarians and the departments they serve, and some have no specifically defined method. You are in the best position to determine the most appropriate method for approaching your library with a request for the addition of a journal to its collection. However, we have developed a library recommendation form as one tool you can use to provide your library with relevant information. The form contains basic information about the journal: a description, its print and electronic ISSNs, frequency of publication, pricing, print and electronic options, and ordering information. It also includes a few questions for you to complete that address your evaluation of the journal's value. If you choose to use the form, fill it out then send it to the appropriate individual at your library. Do not return it to the University of Nebraska Press.
