While the OASIS catalog contains millions of titles, occasionally users may search for a title that cannot be found. In that case, users will be offered the option of creating an "Original Order."
When searching a single unknown title, a dialog will appear which states, "No results were found for your criteria. Create an Original Order?"
When searching multiple ISBNs at once, any unknown items will be returned with the rest of the list. These items will display in red text, "Not on database. Click to place original order."
Clicking will bring up the 'Original Order' form, which should be completed with as much detail as possible.
Author, Title, Publisher and Year of Publication are required. Users may add the original order to either the Shopping Cart or a Custom List before clicking Confirm.
ProQuest will make every effort to source the title based on the provided bibliographic information.
