Suggestion for New Title Purchase: Handbook of Motivation Science

Thursday, November 20th, 2014

Q: Suggestion for New Title Purchase
Title: Handbook of Motivation Science
Author: James Y. Shah & Wendi L. Gardner
Publisher & where & when published: The Guildford Press; 2007
Where you saw this item mentioned: In the online catalogue

A: Thank you for your request. You will be pleased to know that this title is already in the SFU Library’s Collection. It is an electronic resource and our institution has unlimited access to this book. http://troy.lib.sfu.ca/record=b5504794~S1a

Q: Sorry to bug you! I realize the library has it as an e-book. Is there any way to get a print copy of it? I couldn’t read an entire book on my computer!

A: Thanks for the request. Unfortunately, our Psychology book budget does not usually permit us to purchase alternative formats for books at the moment. However, you should be able to obtain a reader-friendly *print* version of this book using interlibrary loan. In fact, you can request any e-book you wish to read in print via interlibrary loan. The request form can be found here: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/find/document-delivery/request-form
Hope that helps!

Best wishes,
Yolanda
