On-Demand Books - How to Order
With the new digital books, we have also introduced a new ordering process. For most of
the digital books in the Colorado Collection, we make copies of the books as needed when
ordered. This new category is called on-demand. If you order through the website, you will
see "On Demand" in the availability column in your search results. To ensure you receive one
of these books, you will need to select the "Rush" link on the book basket
screen. This will place a reserve on the book and start the process for us to make a copy of
the book. For any books already in your request list, you will need to click on the title, then add to your book basket and select the "Rush Existing Order" link to receive the book.
Some of these books are also available for download
through SHELF. There will be a link to download on the book basket page.
If you are the first person requesting a copy of a particular book, it could take up to 4 weeks for
you to receive the book. You will be notified of a delay longer than 4 weeks, with an expected time
frame for completion of the book.
For those who don't order online, just let a reader advisor know the book you'd like to receive and
they will make sure you get a copy.
