To ensure that items ordered for a specific fiscal year are paid for in the same fiscal year, the Library has set an annual schedule for receiving orders from the Library representative.
The annual schedule follows this plan:
- November 15: 75% of the allotted budget must be encumbered
- 3rd Thursday in March: Deadline to complete purchases
- Orders will not be accepted or processed from the third Thursday in March through May 31.
- June 1: New book orders resume.
If the representative has not submitted the required percentage by the above annual due dates, the unencumbered amounts may be used for other college’s requests, at the discretion of the Library Director.
The Library Director is available to assist in determining the availability and cost of proposed acquisitions. Publishers’ and vendors’ catalogs are available for perusal upon request. For further details, please contact the Library Director.
