If you're looking for an e-book that's unavailable in discoverE, you may have other options.

First, check to see if there's a print copy available. From the item's page you should see a tab marked Locations/Call Number. The information under this tab will tell you whether there are print copies available, and if so, where you can find them.

If there's no print copy available, you may have to contact the Interlibrary Loan department and see if they can order a print copy of the item for you.

You may also want to take a look at WorldCat to see if there's a copy of the item in a library nearby. If you're in a hurry, you may be able to get the item more quickly that way.

If you have a membership at a public library, you might check to see if they have the item available for you.
