McKee Library Adds Time-Saving Materials Request Form By E. Stewart on 01/31/2014 Goodwell, Okla. — McKee Library staff, always ready for new ideas to make using the library easy and efficient, has added a new web form for requesting materials.
Many times, students, faculty and staff, and community members have personal requests for materials that could be used to supplement their classes at OPSU. The library's official policy is to "consider any materials requested." Many requests are reviewed and almost all are added to the library. To make this an even easier process, Systems Librarian, Elaina Stewart, and webmaster, Nick Tuttle, have designed an in-house form which can be filled out and submitted from the library's webpage under the "Help; Materials Request Form" link.
"With the increased use of library materials, the responsibility for smart purchasing is even more important," states library director, Tony Hardman.
The steps to request material are:
1. Check the McKee Library Catalog to see if the material is available.
2. If not listed in the catalog, go to the online form and fill out the Materials Request Form at McKee Library Materials Request.
3. Acknowledgement of request and whether the material may be purchased will be sent to the requestor email as listed on the form.
4. When the material is received and cataloged, it will appear in the McKee online Catalog as "New Materials" and may be checked out, or put on reserve for class use.Dawn Lloyd, secretary, will check all requests and pass them on to be submitted for purchase. Call Dawn at 580-349-1548.
