Just stumbled upon a new service at the Library. It’s called “Get This Book.” If you search for a book and the Library doesn’t have it, but it is in the catalog of one of several university presses (including Oxford Univ. Press), you will see the usual record and this logo:

If you click on the logo the Library makes you this offer:
“Get This Book! is a service available to UVM students, faculty, and staff. Bailey/Howe Library does not currently own this book, but we want to purchase it for your use and the library’s permanent collection. If you need the book immediately, we will do everything we can to have the book in your hands within 3 working days.”

Neat!
