When We Don't Own a Standard
If we do not own a copy of the standard that you need, click on the shopping cart (or Buy this standard) to request that the Libraries purchase it. When you "View Basket Checkout" (top of the left navigation bar), you will need to fill out a form. Please include your name, department, phone number and email. You will receive notice that it has been forwarded for purchase. If approved for purchase, you may receive a copy electronically. However, some standards are available only in paper. If this is the case, you will be notified when to pick it up at the Shaver Engineering Library.

When Purchase Requests are Not Approved
Some standards are extremely expensive. If your purchase request is denied, it will probably be because purchasing it would be cost-prohibitive. Contact Susan K. Smith, Head - Shaver Engineering Library at 257-7176 or Sue Smith for further information.
