Welcome to the Acquisitions Department!

The Acquisitions Department comprises the Acquisitions Librarian and Coordinator of Collection Development, Joao Barretto, and three staff members, Marian Gallerani, Eva Wong, and Linda Allen. The Acquisitions Librarian accepts requests from faculty, staff and students for book and other library material purchases for the Rosenberg Library that augment and support the instructional curriculum. Requests for campus library purchases should be sent to the librarians at the following locations: Mauro Garcia at the John Adams Campus Library (415-561-1946), Suzanne Lo at the Downtown Campus Library (415-267-6505), Karen Chan at the Josephine Cole Library at the Southeast Campus (415-550-4353), Anthony Costa at the Mission Campus Library (415-920-6137) and Andrea Niosi at the Alice Statler Library on the Ocean Campus (415-239-3460). Requests for non-print materials such as audiotapes, videotapes, multimedia CD-ROMs, etc. should be sent to Alexander Valentine at the Media Center (415-452-5426).

In order to expedite the ordering process of a new title and to ensure the purchase and receipt of the correct edition, the following pieces of bibliographic information are requested: author, complete title, publisher, place and year of publication and the International Standard Book Number or ISBN (if the latter is known). Requests for acquisition of new materials to be placed on reserves for a class should be submitted with complete bibliographic information, as outlined above, to the Acquisitions Department at least two months in advance of need. Please note that it is the library's policy not to purchase text books or used books for our collection.

Faculty are requested to contact the Acquisitions Librarian as soon as a new course has been approved by the Curriculum Committee to have a recommended reading list for the course available in the library. Faculty should also submit course reading lists to the Acquisitions Librarian for possible library purchase of new titles. Instructors are encouraged to consult with the Acquisitions Librarian and/or the librarian with selection responsibilities in a particular subject area to identify new titles for purchase and addition to the library's collection. To contact the Acquisitions Librarian, please call (415) 452-5441 or send e-mail to jbarrett@ccsf.edu. In order to assist you with contacting the appropriate Ocean campus subject selector, a list arranged by campus departments appears below.
