How do I place an order for media?

To place an order for a video, DVD, CD, etc., follow these instructions:

  1. Check to see if we own the book by searching for it in Voyager Acquisitions
    • Log onto Voyager Acquisitions.

      Operator ID: view
      Password: only

    • Choose any Receiving location.
    • Under Search Line Items, choose Bibliographic Info to search for title or ISBN.
    • Click Search once the title is found.
    • Double-click the line item to view it.
    • (Further instructions on searching are available to UIUC Library staff here ).

      If we already own a copy of the item at the UIUC Library, you may decide not to order a second copy. 

      Note that if it is a recently ordered item, it might not appear in the OPAC, as some items on order are suppressed from the online catalog.

  2. To place an order, please use the online order form.  Please do NOT use Collection Manager to order A/V materials.

    When using the online order form to order media, please be sure to:
    • specify the Catalog For location if it is not going to your unit.  For items going to the Undergraduate Library Media department, please forward a copy of the order to the librarian in the Information Processing and Management department.
    • specify the format
    • supply any vendor info in the Direct Orders field if the item must be ordered directly from the publisher.

  3. NOTE: Access to the online order form is restricted to fund managers and their staff approved for placing orders.  Please contact Stephanie Baker in Acquisitions for access to this form.
