Selectors require a YBP GOBI account before placing selections. A member from the Collections Support Unit will create the necessary ordering templates, for both print and ebook selections. Templates assure the correct sub-account, fund, and location information is applied correctly to each selection.

Many publishers and aggregators offer ebooks in GOBI, often with several license purchase options. Ebook access to titles ordered in GOBI are available on the platform websites before being discoverable in Primo.
