Suggest Purchase or ILL
Purchase Suggestions: If there is something you want us to consider adding to the collection, let us know. If purchased, we’ll place a hold for you.
If a copy is available from an NC Cardinal Library, you’ll get it quicker by placing a hold directly in the online catalog, rather than suggesting a purchase. Your request may be filled by a copy from another library, even if purchased.
We cannot accept requests for movies currently in theaters, or books with publication dates more than 6 months in the future.
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 $4 postage fee is charged for Interlibrary Loans.
