Suggest Purchase or ILL
Purchase Suggestions: We welcome suggestions. We’ll review yours, considering factors such as availability, price, popularity, and critical reviews. If purchased, we’ll add you to the reserve list. We cannot accept requests for movies currently in theaters, or items with a publication date more than 6 months in the future.
Please Note: If a copy is available from an NC Cardinal Library, you’ll get a copy quicker by placing a hold in the online catalog, rather than requesting its purchase. Your request may be filled by a copy from another library, even if purchased.
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Requests: If you request an Interlibrary Loan, we will search libraries nationally and attempt to borrow the item on your behalf. This is a good option for older, obscure or out-of-print books. A $2 postage fee is charged for Interlibrary Loans.
