Do You Need to Order Library Materials to Support Your Curriculum?
Library staff welcomes input from faculty on their curriculum needs. Requests for library materials purchases can be emailed, faxed or made in person at either campus library location. The minimal information needed to process the request is the author (if available), title, copyright date and a ISBN number or ISBN-13 number. The more information you have about a resource, the better.

If you have any questions not answered here, give Library Staff a call at 918-463-6210 in Warner or 918-684-5408 in Muskogee. We look forward to seeing you in the Library! WELCOME!
