2e: Purchase requests for print items

Request Electronic version of Purdue Owned Print Title

If you find an item where the library has a physical copy, but you would like an electronic version of the book, you can place a request through the Library Reading List.

Search for the item and once you locate it, you can add it to a section. If we do not have an electronic copy, a pop-up box will appear once you add the print item to a section.

Select Purchase e-book copy, if available. The item will be added to your reading list with a Purchase e-copy tag and the status will say Being Prepared.

Next Steps

If an electronic copy of the book is found, Libraries staff will add the linking information to the item and the status will be changed to Complete. If an electronic copy of the book cannot be found, Libraries staff will inform you.
