There are numerous channels to request resources for the library and which you use does depend on what type of item you would like to request.

If you have discovered a book which the library does not already have, you can request it in 2 ways:

  • Student Suggests
  • Add a Book


Use Student Suggests…
when you would like to recommend a book or electronic book (ebook) which would be useful for other students on your course or module.

Use Add a Book….
if you would like to recommend a print copy of a book which would be useful for your own particular area of research but not heavily used by others on your course (e.g. for a dissertation or specific research question). You can still request it, however you should do this through the Add a Book service.

For journal articles...
we recommend you use the Inter-library loans service. If you would like to request access to a journal article that isn’t already available via Discover More or the A-Z of journals, we recommend that you place an inter-library loan request to see if you can borrow the item from another library.
