Alumni, friends, faculty, students, and the public can benefit the Library's collections by purchasing books through the Buy-A-Book Service (BABS). This service provides quick and easy access to local and online booksellers. A percentage of purchases from select vendors will allow the Library to continue building its exceptional collections.
The University Library holds more than 13 million volumes, a vast and varied array of outstanding resources. When a title is unavailable or a book purchase is needed, this page assists in directing library users to a bookseller. Using the search tool above to identify a book for purchase guarantees that a small percentage of the proceeds will be directed to the Library.
You can also find the books you want through our helpful listing of other quality stores.
