The Library welcomes suggestions from staff and students for additions to the Library’s Collections.

If approved, our policy is to order a hardcopy and an e-book of titles that are relevant to teaching and research needs. We order the latest edition of requested books. The short video below shows how to order a book via our Library Catalogue. A pdf of instructions is also available.

Note: You will receive an email from the Library when the print/e-book is available. Print books normally arrive within 21 working days. E-Books are available within 3 working days.


Journal/Database Requests

  1. Requests for recurrent subscriptions such as journals/databases must come from members of academic staff.
  2. The academic member of staff should forward any journal or database requests to
  3. Institutional pricing for the resource will be sought and checked against existing school budgets 
  4. Authorisation from the head of school may also be required

Our ability to purchase subscriptions in particular has been limited in recent years due to ongoing cuts to the Library’s Information Resource budget.
