UNL uses the eSHOP system for purchasing from many common vendors including: UNL Software, UNL Apple Sales, Dell, Fisher Scientific, Bio-Rad, IDT, Office Depot, Newegg, Grainger, and many more.
- For all the current and future suppliers for the eSHOP system, take a look at the eSHOP vendors
- If you need any help using eSHOP, take a look at the eSHOP Training Materials
Sometimes the correct vendor is not in the eSHOP system. If this is the case, you will have to fill out a purchase requisition and have Damon order if for you.
A purchase requisition form will be used for ordering goods and services from internal University departments and external vendors not available in the eSHOP system and/or requiring the use of a purchasing card.
Below are instructions on how to order items via eSHOP and via purchase requisition.
