Ordering Essentials

How do I place an order for a book?

To order a book, follow these instructions:

  1. Check to see if we own the book by searching for it in UCLID, most of them will appear there and you can search the title there. 

    For added copies: Proceed directly to Tricerashopper. Please do NOT use GOBI for added copies. Duplicates are not encouraged, except under special circumstances (such as for Reserves).
    For rush materials: Proceed directly to Tricerashopper.  Please do NOT use GOBI for rush materials. 
    Maps, A/V materials, and foreign (non-UK and non-Canadian) materials: Proceed directly to Tricerashopper. Please do NOT use GOBI for rush materials.

  2. For basic US, Canadian and U.K imprints, search for it in GOBI (further instructions about GOBI are available there).  Place the order in GOBI if it is available there.
    • NOTE: We also work with vendors in Spain, Italy, Germany and France.  If you order from publishers in those locations, please contact us to get set up with one of those systems (Casalini, Harrassowitz, and Aux Amateurs de Livres).
    • NOTE:  For new titles, it is possible that another selector has ordered the book in GOBI before you, but that the record has not yet been loaded in Sierra (there is a lag of several days before the records are loaded in Sierra).  If you see a line beginning “Exported” followed by a date, click that link to see if it was already exported.  Note the fund associated with the top most Action in the list.  If this is 1260-41, this signifies that the title appears in UCLID for a patron to request that we purchase it (i.e. Patron Driven Acquisitions).  If it is a different fund, this signifies that the title has been ordered already.  If it has already been ordered and you still wish to order an added copy, please use Tricerashopper.
  3. If the item is not available in GOBI, place an order for it using Tricerashopper.
