(Jan 25/08) Please spend more money on books! I am a graduate student writing my dissertation and I constantly have to order books through RACER. Waiting a week or two to receive books hinders my research and thought processes. The books I am ordering are not esoteric or rare. They are standard sources most other libraries have. Libraries are about books! Please buy more of them.
Library response: Unfortunately the library budget does not permit the purchase of all the books which might be appropriate for a university library. What subject are you studying? You are welcome to suggest books you would like to see added to the collection, although it may not be possible to purchase them all. A book recommendation form can be found at: http://library.mcmaster.ca/cat-coll/coll/recommend.htm (Jan 29/08)
