Requesting books, journals and other resources for library stock

As a member of academic staff, you can make book requests to support your courses, including new titles and electronic copies of existing print stock, if available. If you wish to suggest books or other material for purchase by the Library please complete a book recommendation for purchase form (please note that this link is only available to members of staff).

New requests for journals and databases are also considered annually, but may have to be balanced by cancellations owing to funding restraints. If you wish to suggest a new subscription, please fill in as much detail as possible on the recommendation for a new subscription form (please note that this link is only available to members of staff). 

If you prefer, you can contact your subject librarian directly by email or telephone; see our Contacts and Library sites page. Your librarian will also be able to advise you and keep you up-to-date on all your stock requests.

The Library’s collection management policy prioritises electronic copies over print material, to make resources more widely accessible, so please keep this in mind when making your requests.
