Hack the Stacks

Help University Libraries continue to build a collection that represents all voices and multiple points of view. Hack the Stacks invites you, the library user, to suggest purchases that will help broaden the representation of authors and ideas available from our Libraries. Use the link below to suggest books and other materials that will help diversify our collections:


The University Libraries Collections Development team will review these requests on a monthly basis and purchase those not already represented in our collections. Purchases are dependent on available funds.

Materials purchased through this program will be posted on this web page. Questions. Contact Mike Collura.
