Faculty Book Acquisitions With Faculty Development Funds

Faculty Development Funds

Full-time, regular faculty members receive an allocation of $5,000 each fiscal year in Faculty Development (FD) funds. These monies may be used to purchase legal materials for faculty research, in addition to other purposes.

Submitting an FD order request

To purchase a book using FD funds, send a link to the Amazon.com record for the book, or send the title, author, preferred edition and format, publication date, and ISBN (if available) to the Technical Services Librarian memo or e-mail. She forwards the appropriate bibliographic and vendor information to Cynthia Carter in the Faculty Assistants’ Office. Ms. Carter places the order and charges the faculty member’s FD funds. She will also notify the faculty member when the item arrives, or she will advise the faculty member of any delays or vendor cancellations.
