Student Request a Book (RaB)
Can't find a book you need for your studies? Use RaB to tell us and we will try to buy it for the library.
This service is for currently-registered 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-version where this is available, and where no e-version is available your purchase request will be put on hold until normal operations can resume.
You can submit a purchase request using this secure Student Request a Book link
Information about you: how we use it and with whom we share it
The information you provide will be used by the Library to progress your resource purchase request.
We will use the supplied information to contact you should there be any queries or problems with your purchase request (e.g. items out of print/not available for purchase/not available in requested format).
We will use your e-mail address to alert you once the requested item has been added to Library collections and is available for you to consult.
We are using information about you because providing you with the requested necessary literature is part of our contractual obligation.
