Resource purchase requests

Staff can use the relevant online form for their College to request the purchase of resources for Library collections (e.g. books, CDs and DVDs). Students may make purchase suggestions for Library collections by using the Request a Book Service (RaB) for students.

New subscription requests- if you would like to recommend a new library subscription (e.g. for a journal or database), please do not use these forms - contact your Academic Support Librarian in the first instance.
Course organisersplease do not use these online Resource Purchase Requests forms if you are using the Resource Lists service (Leganto) to manage your online reading lists.  Your purchase requests must instead be added to your list and submitted via your resource list in Leganto:   https://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/research-teaching-staff/resource-lists/using-resource-lists/review
