ILL / Purchase Request

Document Delivery & Interlibrary Loan

Interlibrary loan (ILL) is a service that allows you to borrow books, journal articles, movies, and more from participating libraries worldwide. Simply request an item and we will find it for you!

Request Materials for Purchase

A percentage of the Bellevue University Library's budget is dedicated to purchasing physical and electronic materials to support the college curriculum. If there is an educational item that you would like us to add to our collection, you can submit a purchase request. 

Types of Materials Available for Request

You can request that the library purchase any of the following materials types: 

  • Book
  • E-book (Online)
  • Video (DVD)
  • Streaming Video (Online)
  • Periodical
  • Audiobook (CD)

Before submitting a purchase request, please note:

  • The library will not collect physical copies of materials already available in our electronic collections or freely available online unless a requester provides a reasonable preference for owning it in physical format. Generally, only one physical copy of an item will be collected, though we may purchase additional copies to meet significant demand.
  • The use of the library materials budget to supply course textbooks is discouraged. 
  • Please search our collection at to see if the material is already owned before requesting a purchase.
  • If the material you want is more than two years old, we suggest trying our Interlibrary Loan Request Form before making a purchase request.
