Ordering Books

Once you have used the search feature to find books, you can select them in two ways:

  • in a list of multiple titles, check the request book box for each book you'd like on that page and then click "Add to Book Basket", or

  • in a individual book record just click "Add to Book Basket"

*NOTE - There are two new availability options when ordering from the WebOPAC. Books listed as "download only" are only available through the BARD website. More information is located on the BARD page of our webiste. The other option is "on demand" which is currently limited to books in the Colorado collection. A copy of an on-demand book will be made when a rush order is placed on the book.

After you have added books to the Book Basket, you will get a listing of everything that is currently ready for you to check out. At this point you can either conduct another search or check out your books. You have the option of checking the "rush this item" box located under each title listed in the book basket. You may rush up 5 items per week. Rush items will be sent out with the next day's mailing. Other items on the list will be added to your request list and sent based on your service option (see Patron Information). Once you have selected any rush items, click the "Proceed to Checkout" button.

If you receive the Order Verification screen after selecting proceed to checkout, there is a problem with one of the items you have ordered. The page will let you know what the problem is and offer a check box for you to remove the item from your order. If you'd still like to receive the book, you will need to call a Reader's Advisor to assist with clearing up the problem.
