Request a Title for Purchase

The Libraries welcome suggestions for the acquisition of resources that support teaching, study, and research at the University. In the fields below, please provide as much publication information as possible about the item you are requesting.

Most requests for e-books can be fulfilled in 2-3 business weeks. Most requests for physical materials (print books, media, scores, etc.) can be fulfilled in 4-5 business weeks.

  • Do you need this resource for instruction, research, patient care, or leisure? Do you have a preferred device type for online materials (e.g. laptop, mobile device, e-reader, etc.)?

  • If you are affiliated with UNC-Chapel Hill, this number is your PID.
  • MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • Do you want us to notify you when the title is available?
  • Although the library attempts to acquire appropriate requests as soon as possible, the process can take months in the case of specialized publications and titles published abroad. If you need a published resource sooner, please request it via Interlibrary Borrowing.
