Any member of our university community can ask us to acquire books and audiovisual items for inclusion in the CRAI Library’s collection. We will always give priority to items featured on the recommended reading lists corresponding to course syllabuses, but you can also request works of fiction and non-fiction, poetry, films and documentaries.
Please keep in mind that books are usually acquired in digital format (if available) because of the 24/7 accessibility this format offers.
The average delivery time for items available on the market is 21 days (print format) or 1-2 days (digital format). According to the commitment included in the CRAI Library’s Service Charter, the item will be added to the collection within 10 days of its arrival at the CRAI Library.
The acquisition and authorization procedure is different for students and faculty members. Click on the appropriate tab at the top of this page to obtain more details.
