Title Purchase Suggestion
Before making a suggestion to purchase a title, please check our Catalog to verify that the Library does not already own the title. Information from Books-in-Print or Amazon.com may be helpful in determining if your suggestion is available for purchase.
- Due to the high volume of suggestions received, we are unable to send individual notifications concerning purchases.
- While the San Diego Public Library strives to make our collection as responsive as possible to community needs, we are unable to purchase every title that is suggested.
- For very specialized or out-of-print titles, you may want to request that the title be transferred from another library system. (For more detail see Interlibrary Loan procedures.)
- When titles are ordered they appear in the Library Catalog. To place a hold (reserve a title), please check the Library Catalog for availability.
