Resource purchase requests
Academic staff can use the relevant online form for their College to request the purchase of books and resources for Library collections . Currently-registered students may make purchase suggestions for Library collections by using the Request a Book Service (RaB) for students.
Due to the impact of COVID-19 on the wider supply chain, and on Library operations, we are currently unable to complete purchase orders for print books and other physical formats.
We shall attempt to source an e-book where these are available, and where no e-book is available your purchase request will be put on hold until normal operations can resume.
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 organisers - you do not need to use these online Resource Purchase Requests forms if you are using the Resource Lists service (Leganto) to manage your online reading lists. When you create and submit a resource list, the Library automatically checks whether Essential and Recommended books on your list are already in stock, and will purchase additional items as required.
