GOBI is YBP's selection portal that allows us to view the slips sent to us via email (weekly) and mark them for selection and eventual purchase by the Technical Services Manager.
GOBI login is done by entering your email and password. Once there, you can view your slip notifications for titles that meet our approval profile.
Your weekly slips in GOBI allows you to see electronic availability of an item. When choosing between print and e-book, consider the Library’s general selection guidelines. Also, if your liaison area relies heavily on off-campus access such as the technical careers courses at the West Campus, consider choosing the e-book version.
Choose the vendor for an e-book based on this order:
Choose SUPO (single user purchase option)
If a book has already been sent as DDA (you can find the message in the right corner of the screen that says "Library DDA sent"), don't select the print book anymore since it is already in our catalog as DDA title.
The documents below provides you some guidelines you need to follow when selecting e-books from GOBI.
