We work closely with lecturers to buy the books you need for your course. You told us you want more print books, so we're trialling a new scheme to get you the books you want in the Library.
Books Buy You is our new scheme to buy you the resources you need. If the Library doesn't own the book you need for your studies, tell us and we'll buy a print copy if we can for the Library.
Let us know the details of the book you need. When the book arrives we'll email you to let you know it is ready to collect.
Please use the Books Buy You order form to ask the Library to buy a print book under this scheme.
If you are an undergraduate student or postgraduate student/researcher then you can order books through this scheme.
If it's a PRINT book you can order any book that you need for your studies as long as it complies with the following conditions:
You can order up to 3 books. As the scheme is open to all Manchester Met students we want to give everyone a chance to benefit.
As long as your order meets the conditions above the book should be ready to borrow after 10 working days if it's available from our supplier.
We'll reserve the book for you as part of your normal reservation allowance and send you an email when it is ready to collect. If you've reached your normal reservation allowance we'll still purchase the book for the Library but we won’t be able to reserve it for you. Please check the Library catalogue for availability.
You can borrow the book for the normal 4 week loan period and it will be part of your normal loan allowance. You can renew the book as long as nobody else has reserved it. All books ordered through the Books Buy You scheme are part of the Library's collection so may be subject to recall if required by another borrower.
We have set aside some money for this scheme and we'll run it until the money is spent. We may offer this scheme again when more funds become available.
We'd love to hear your feedback so please use our social media channels to tell us what you think or email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We have designed this scheme to enable students to contribute to the development of the Library collection by telling us the books they need for their studies. If you are a member of academic staff, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
