2. Library Expedited Acquisitions Program (LEAP)
If you have an urgent need for the item (within seven days) please use our
Library Expedited Acquisitions Program
(LEAP) rather than the Standard Purchase Recommendation. Please be aware that if a decision is made to purchase an item, it may take several months to obtain and process it, especially if it is from another country. You will be notified when it has arrived and is ready for circulation.
Some items, especially those requiring ongoing commitments such as journals, or very expensive items such as electronic databases, may fall outside the funding limits and not be purchased immediately.
In addition, the libraries do not purchase textbooks, how-to manuals, best-sellers or materials not relevant to academic programs at USC, such as those pertaining to veterinary medicine.
