If you cannot find appropriate or adequate information on a

Catalog, you may send a Subject Request to the PLUS staff.
Email your subject requests to
email@example.com. Please be as specific as possible in what information

(e.g., the student needs four sources about training rescue dogs and one of them
has to be a journal article).
We will not use information outside of Pickler’s collections
to fill any subject requests.
Pickler will send you a list of books and materials being
withdrawn from the university library in the spring. You will be able to
select titles for your library from the list. We will pay mailing costs to
ship the items to you.
Please see our School Visits page for information
about coming to our library for research.
PLUS schools are able to check out all materials from their visit on the
PLUS card. This gives students a
longer borrowing period than they would have with individual cards, and it
lessens the paperwork before and during your visit.
The Online Resources page has items of interest to school libraries and
K-12 teachers, including links to free databases and ebook collections.
