Buy books online, UI Library gets referral fee!

A timely reminder from the Main Library:

The holiday season is upon us! Make this year's gift giving a bit easier by
completing your holiday shopping via the library's new Buy a Book Service (BABS).
If you shop via the library's Buy a Book Service page, a small
portion of each BABS sale will go back to the university.

You can access the BABS page by clicking on the following URL:
There is also a link to the BABS page on the Office of Collections homepage:

The UIUC Library has established a “Buy a Book” Service, which provides a convenient way to locate books online for purchase AND benefit the Library’s collections. Online purchases from select vendors will provide modest referral fees, which will be used to help add more books to the Library’s collections.

Visit to access booksellers. For online offerings, use the “Exit Illinois” links to search for items and order them for direct shipment to your office or home. Please support the library by using this service when shopping for books online.
