Online Requests

Save time requesting the titles to add to your Digital Campus online. 

Who can request titles? Instructors who self-register for an Instructor account may request titles as well as Site Administrators.

How does this work? Requests for titles are submitted via email. If you are an Instructor, your request will either be routed to the library or to Digital Campus, depending on your library's preferences. If you are an Admin who receives requests from faculty, simply forward the email request to your Digital Campus Account Manager with your approval, and we will add the content to your Content Catalog. If you have a deposit account and want all requests fulfilled automatically, your Account Manager will place the order right away.

When will I receive the titles? The turnaround time from requesting a title to having the title appear in the Digital Campus website depends on how soon the request is forwarded to Swank. The request form includes a date field to indicate when the title is needed, and we will work with whoever is approving the requests on your end to fulfill the content by that date or communicate the time frame. To expedite requests, or if you have a deposit account and want to streamline this process, we recommend that you add the Digital Campus email to the recipient list. 

How do I get started? Site Admins can learn more about this feature by viewing these videos or following the instructions below.
