BSU is open. Non-essential employees are mostly teleworking, and classes are following a hybrid model of in-person and online instruction.




The Acquisitions Department is committed to the appropriate increase of academic resources for the Thurgood Marshall Library. Acquisitions works in conjunction with library and faculty liaisons to help build a strong collection which is centered on the core curricula of the University and its mission.

The Acquisitions Department is located on the first floor of the library, Suite 1160, in the Technical Services area.

Library Resource Request

If you would like the library to purchase a book, an e-book or reference resources, the first step is to check the Catalog USMAI. The library may already have what you want.  If that is not the case, please email to Indira Cropper or submit your request from here (Library Resource Purchase Request Form). If multiple titles are needed, please use this form to submit your request via email.
