Managing library book requests

This article is for LIBRARIANS. πŸ–₯οΈπŸ“—πŸ˜

If your library purchase type is set to 'Librarian purchasing' and/or you haven't yet loaded your account balance, students can make requests for ebooks they would like your school to purchase by clicking on the β€˜Request book’ button under the book that they want.

Librarians can then manage these requests under the β€˜Requests’ section.

To review all requests:

  1. Navigate to the β€˜Requests’ section when logged in to Engage.
  2. Under the 'New' tab, you will see any new requests, which you can approve or deny. Simply select the title and click the 'Approve' or 'Deny' button at the top of your screen.

  3. You can also approve books that were previously denied if, for instance, budget now allows for a book to be purchased. You'll find these under the 'Denied' tab. Simply select the relevant title to open the book's page, and click the 'Add' button to purchase the book for your library.

If you have any questions or need assistance, contact us at or send us a chat message in Engage using the chatbot in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
