Help Us Choose Books for the Sawyer Library

Patron Driven Acquisition - Help Us Buy Books


Sawyer Library has initiated a Patron Driven Acquisition (PDA) program with eBrary titles.  These new titles are listed below.  A PDA program means books are purchased only if they are used.

If you are interested in reading any of these books, open one and print a page or two or view it for at least 10 minutes, and we will purchase the book.  

Simply search the title in the Suffolk University catalog.
