Request a Purchase

The DeWitt Wallace Library strives to create a vibrant collection that supports the current curricular and research needs of our students and faculty as well as lifelong learning and personal growth for the Macalester community. We encourage Macalester faculty, staff, and students to help us build a rich and diverse collection by submitting requests to purchase books and media items. Please see our Collections Policy for more information about our goals for the collection.


Please use OASIS, our online ordering system, whenever possible. If you need OASIS login information, training, or support, please contact Katy Gabrio, [email protected]  or your Research & Instruction Librarian.

Note: please use our Purchase Request form for any of the following cases:

  • the item you are requesting is not found in OASIS
  • the item is needed for a class or more immediate need
  • ebook is the preferred format


Please use our Purchase Request form to submit your purchase requests for book and media items to be added to our collection.
