Ask for a new library item
If we don't have the library item you want in our collection, tell us and we'll try to acquire it. We will either purchase it or borrow it from another library. We buy ebooks whenever we can as this increases access to titles.
Before requesting an item you must first check that it is not already available in Library Search. We will not purchase items that we already have. If more than one copy is required or it is Reading List material, please see alternative purchase suggestion routes below.
If you want us to collect an existing item off the library shelves for you, try the Click and Collect service.
The request allowances for this service are:
|User group||Request allowance per academic year|
|Postgraduate – Research||Unlimited requests|
|Postgraduate – Taught||30 requests per academic year|
|Undergraduate – Final year||30 requests in final year|
|Undergraduate||10 requests per academic year|
Alternative purchase suggestion routes
- Lecturers needing books for a reading list should see Reading Lists or contact an Academic Support Librarian.
- Students can use the Library Champions scheme if an item you want is always in use or would be of benefit to other students.
