The button is designed to enable you to readily cross-check titles located in other databases with BU Libraries holdings.
This feature allows you to:
Scenario: You are doing preliminary research for a paper you hope to present on Chistian responses to Hinduism.
Searching the WorldCat database, you discover a promising title: Song Divine: Christian commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita, by Catherine Cornille.
From experience, you know that WorldCat is a union catalog and contains more item records than just BU Libraries holdings. So you must next determine whether or not BU Libraries holds a copy of this title.
If we do not, you can request the purchase of a copy through the "Suggest a Purchase" service. This is an especially useful option for titles you expect to require for lengthy duration and items you anticipate will be utilized by other Baylor researchers.
But if time is a factor, Interlibrary Loan is the preferred option. The item can usually be obtained more rapidly than if it is purchased.
