A: Thank you for taking the time to make a book request. Unfortunately, this title is outside the scope of our collections policy. As there are no religious studies or theology departments at SFU, our limited collections funds are dedicated to supporting the main research areas at SFU. However, I note that you are a staff member of SFU. Accordingly, please feel free to place an interlibrary loan request for this title: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/find/document-delivery/request-form

Suggestion for New Title Purchase: Reciprocating Pumps

Where you saw this item mentioned: Library of U of V
If you wish to be notified when the item is ready for you, please select a pick-up location: Fraser Library (SFU Surrey)
Your affiliation: SFU Graduate Student

A: Thanks for suggesting we purchase a copy of Reciprocating Pumps by Terry L. Henshaw. I’ve ordered this title and asked that a hold be placed on it for you, so you’ll be notified when it is ready to borrow.

If you need this title immediately, please also order it as an interlibrary loan (for free) here: http://www.lib.sfu.ca/find/document-delivery/request-form. The order I placed could take a few weeks or a few months to arrive, depending on how long it takes to receive the title. If you need to use it this term, I would strongly suggest that you also order it as an interlibrary loan. Books requested as interlibrary loans generally take 4-8 business days to arrive.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks again,
Shane

Request for Electronic Version of Journal “Networks”

March 14th, 2014
Q: I would like to request that the library purchase an on-line license for the Journal “Networks” for the early 1970s-1990s. The link to the Wiley Press site is here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/net.3230040204/abstract

It has some excellent articles but currently they are only available in hardcopy from Bennett.
Which library?  Bennett (SFU Burnaby Mountain)

A: You will be happy to know that you can use the ‘Request item’ button in the library catalogue to request that an article from a print journal elsewhere at SFU be delivered electronically to you.

In the Library catalogue, with the entry for the print journal in question displaying, click the ‘request item’ button. The ‘Request article’ form will allow you to enter information identifying a specific article.

I hope this will meet your information needs.

Sincerely,
