Ordering books right from the catalog

Did you know that you can order a book to add to the Libraries’ collection right from our catalog? We load records into our catalog from selected academic publishers for books that we don’t yet own. That means you can help us select books for our collection with just a few keystrokes. Here’s how it works: 

1) Search the catalog for a specific title or topic. In the results, you may run across a record for a book that looks like this: 

catalog record with link to order book

2) Click on the link that says “This book is available for the library to purchase in print.”

3) Fill in your CSU eID and password, complete a quick form, and voilà! 

If you didn’t find the book you would like in our collection, you can suggest that we purchase it by using this form. Please get in touch if you have any questions.
