Admins: Ordering titles by first building a list in your Working List, then ordering the list

Note that while the working list is under the “Search” tab, you’ll actually be using the “Admin” tab and “ACQUISITION” tab to find the items to order.

1. Go to your ebrary site at http://site.ebrary.com/lib/xxxxx

where xxxxx is your ebrary site name (often same as domain name)

2. Sign In using a username that has admin-tab ordering privileges

3. First, from the “Search” tab, empty out your Working List:

a) Click on the “Search” tab

b) Click on the “LIST” tab

c) Click on “Select All”

d) Click on the button above that says “Remove Selection from List”

Now your Working List is empty.

4. Then use the “ACQUISITION” tab to search the “All Purchasable” collection, one-by-one, for the titles you want to order, and as you find them add them to your Working List:

a) Click on the “Admin” tab, then the “ACQUISITION” tab

b) Click on the box “Perpetual Access (purchase)”, then click the “Advanced Search” button

c) It should come up with the “All Purchasable” collection already selected

d) Set a search line to search by “Title” and enter the title you’re looking for

e) Select “Search ebrary” down below the search criteria

f) Note, for prices to show here, you’ll need to click on the “Long” button so that you see the full info for each title.

g) Click to select the check box to the left of the title you’d like to purchase.

h) Click the “Add Selection to Working List” button.

5. Repeat 4d-4h to add each title you want

6. Once you’ve added all the titles you want to order to your Working List, go to your working list and review the list to make sure you want all those titles:

a) Click on the “Search” tab

b) Click on the “LIST” tab

c) Check to make sure you want to purchase all the titles on the list (if not, click the titles you don’t want and then click the Remove Selection button)

7. Order all the titles on your working list:

a) Click “Select All”

d) Click on the button above that says “Prepare to Order Selection”

8. The system will then tell you which titles are available, etc., click “Order available documents”

9. You’ll be on a page titled “Select Documents to Order”, click to select SUPO, 3USER or MUPO for each title.  (Note, some titles are not offered as 3USER or MUPO.)

10. Click “Review Order”

11. This is the final step before actually placing the order.  If you click “Submit Order”, these titles will be ordered.

Note:  if you purchase a title that’s already on your site in a subscription collection, the URL will remain the same and you will not be sent a duplicate MARC record.

Note:  you can check the status of all orders using the “ORDERS” tab
