If your institution is on this list then you will have a button in the Requests module (connected to SciQuest*) that allows you to easily search through your institution's purchasing system for an item requested in Quartzy.
There are a few cases when this might not work optimally:
1. If the vendor for the item does not have a hosted catalog in your system (i.e. punchouts will not be searched automatically)
2. Sometimes the quantity information in the Catalog # (i.e. Sigma-Aldrich 12345: 100ul) will prevent the search - just delete the quantity info (: 100ul) in your search bar and search again
3. If the same catalog number is in multiple catalogs; i.e., some large hosted vendors will use the manufacturer's catalog numbers in their catalog, so you might need to search specifically through the vendor you want to order from.
