BEACON Express Guide: Purchase Books

Purchase Deskcopy Books

For those working on lab:

In BEACON Express, you can request a book purchase.

To order a book, you need to supply a book title, author/editors, ISBN or any other information about the book. You also need to specify a Project/Task Number. The book can be delivered through JPL mail, or held for pick-up at the JPL Library (Building 111).

For those working remotely:

Email Beth Daruthayan if you would like to request home delivery of a purchased print book. The email should include the title(s), the project/task number, the home address, a business need statement, and an approval email from your supervisor/manager.

The library will still process purchase requests for electronic books (pdf and Kindle).
