We appreciate customer suggestions and try to purchase suggested titles to add to the Austin Public Library's collection. Please use the Suggest a Title form in your My Library Dashboard to alert the library's ordering team.
Under normal circumstances, we would be able to request print books through Interlibrary Loan from other library systems. However, Interlibrary Loan has been suspended until further notice due to limited library services and closures. Please see our full Interlibrary Loan Policy for additional information. Other media may be available through the Texas State Library and Archives Interlibrary Loan service when they resume Interlibrary Loan services.
Follow the below steps to suggest titles for purchase.
You will see the status of your suggestions on the right, with purchases showing as Under Review, Approved, or Not Approved.
You can Cancel a request if a selector has not responded to it yet, and make a new suggestion. You can also Remove a reviewed suggestion, but you will not be able to make a new suggestion in its place (unless you have not yet used your monthly limit).
