Purchase recommendations can be made through the Information Delivery Services (IDS) system. If we are unable to purchase a recommended item, we will borrow it for you from another library (or hold the item for you if it's already available in our collection).

When placing any IDS request

Any book or media item you request can be recommended for purchase. For example, if you find a book in WorldCat, IDS Search, or another database, you can make a purchase recommendation when you place the request.

You will be asked to prioritize your request as “essential,” “highly recommended,” or “recommended.” By prioritizing items at the point of request, the library can better manage its funds and direct acquisition dollars to the most needed resources.
