As an academic library, the University of Wyoming generally does not purchase popular reading materials. Our collection development staff rents popular reading materials on a rotating basis from a library book vendor. However, be aware that the UW Libraries do purchase novels (regular and graphic) and non-fiction that go into the regular collection so those authors' works can be studied and researched. 

If you would like the collection development staff to consider purchase of specific books, you may submit a request to purchase a book. Each title will be evaluated but there is not guarantee that the book will be purchased.
