Request the Purchase of an Item for UNLV Libraries

Recommendations will be forwarded to a liaison librarian for review and purchase consideration, but the library cannot guarantee the purchase of every item requested. Materials that support the research and teaching programs of the university are given first priority. Please suggest one purchase per form submission.

Assuming an item has been selected for purchase, ordering, shipping and processing can still take several weeks.  If you need the item in a shorter timeframe please use our InterLibrary Loan services to borrow from another library.
