Request a Purchase

UCSC faculty, students and staff: 
Use this form for ordering materials (books or other media).

Books:

  • The library will license eBooks in support of teaching and research

Streaming Video:

  • The library will license streaming files that are both required for remote teaching and licensable for institutional use
  • Please do not use the Kanopy form to request films. Doing so slows down the ordering process

The library has a large selection of eBooks and streaming media, see if UCSC already owns the item(s) you would like to order by using Library Search.
