On-Demand Books - How to Order

Audio file for On-Demand Books

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 of 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 2 weeks for you to receive the book. You will be notified of a delay longer than 3 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.
