Requesting a book purchase through the library is not a guarantee that the book will be purchased. The Collection Development Office (CDO) reviews all purchase requests and makes decisions based on many factors (cost, utility to academic programs, etc.). It also may take several months for a book to arrive at the library, which may be due to publication dates, availability of the book, and availability of funds.
Patrons are not contacted regarding their request, so check the library catalog to determine if the book is listed. If the book is not listed, it was not purchased or has not arrived.
If the requested book is needed urgently, UW Libraries have borrowing agreements with Colorado (Prospector), Missouri (Mobius), and nationwide libraries (Request It). Almost any book or media item may be borrowed. Contact the Coe Help Desk if assistance is required to locate items and make requests.
