Welcome!

In addition to this guide, you can find more information about the library and its resources online. We recommend reviewing the following pages:

Purchase Requests

We welcome your suggestions of materials to purchase for the library's collections. Before making your request, please consider if the material supports your curricular and/or research needs. 

Requests may be made in two ways:

  • For Items Held at other WRLC Members: Search for the item in UDC Search. On the item's page, under the "Where to Get It" menu click "Request UDC Purchase This Item." Complete the form and click "Send Request."
  • For Items Not Held at UDC or WRLC: Fill out the form available in "Search by Citation" with as much information as possible. Make sure you select the book option. Then, click "Submit." Under the "Where to Get It" menu, click "Request UDC Purchase This Item." Complete the form and click "Send Request."

Note: You MUST be signed in to make a purchase request.

Once you submit a request, you will receive emails throughout the process if we are able to purchase the item. We are not able to purchase all requested material, but will do our best to fulfill your needs within the parameters of our Collection Development Policy.

If you have any questions about purchase requests, please email ask@udc.libanswers.com.
