Any new books you require for teaching should be added to your module reading list from the publishers websites or an online bookshop. We'll see the new requests when you send your list in for review and arrange for purchase.
To help with this process please indicate whether the books are:
essential (is the text needed for seminar discussions and does every student require a copy for the course or just that week?)
recommended (are you expecting every student to read this at some point?)
Alternatively you can email your Academic Subject Librarian with details of the text, number of copies, date required by, module code or title.
Any requests for new journals or databases should be discussed with your Academic Subject Librarian. Journal subscriptions usually run from January to December and are reviewed annually in August.
If you'd like to try a resource first we can usually arrange trial access.
Wherever possible ebooks will be purchased if they are available and more than one student can access them at a time. For accessibility print copies will also be purchased alongside ebooks.
Please see the guide on ebooks for further information.
Once you request an item we will contact you if we expect any delays. It takes a while to get new books on the shelves so it's worth requesting new titles well in advance of when they're required.
Your Academic Subject Librarian will keep you up to date with new resources in your field.
