Suggested Books & Resources
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.
Requests for recurrent subscriptions such as journals/databases must come from academic staff. 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. As a result there is currently an embargo on new journal and database subscriptions.
Please forward any journal or database requests to firstname.lastname@example.org where we will hold details pending an improvement in our budgetary situation.
Reading List Service
For books that are course materials please contact the Reading List Service. This is a specific Library service that prioritises teaching support materials.
We would be delighted to hear any other suggestions you would like to make about Library services, please email email@example.com
