Request a Title for Purchase


Changes In Purchasing Due to COVID-19

The library is currently ordering requests in online formats only. Any items that cannot be ordered online or that you would like to request in an alternate format will be held and reviewed at a later date.


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.

  • For items over $150, please use this space to tell us why you want the library to purchase the resource.
  • If you are affiliated with UNC-Chapel Hill, this number is your PID.
  • Date Format: MM slash DD slash YYYY
  • Notification * Required
    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.
