Special Orders

For special orders, like state slices and custom queries, you can either send in an order form or place the order over the telephone. Please note that special orders require library staff time to process. That means an order will likely not be processed on the day it is submitted, especially if it is placed during academic breaks, holidays or weekends. If you need your order filled immediately, or you are on deadline, please use the online store.
