      3. Forsyth Library
      4. Faculty members have access to services provided by Forsyth Library. The Faculty ID card is needed to check out books and other materials. Forsyth Library allocates annual funding for the acquisition of books and videos to each academic department. One member of each department is assigned as the library liaison for their department. Faculty members submit requests for books and videos (to be ordered by the library for its collection) to the library liaison who will then prioritize requests from all departmental faculty and submit them to the library for ordering.
