Recommend a Book

Students and staff are welcome to recommend books for the library that support University assignments and research. 

Recommend a Book

If your request is purchased as an ebook we will email a link to you, and you should get this within 5 working days.  Print books will take an average of 2-3 weeks to arrive and be processed (this can be longer if the item is out of print), you will receive a library notification when the item is ready for you to collect.

Should I request a book or an inter-library loan?

Recommend a book if it is:

  • Not already in the library (please check the library catalogue )
  • New (published in the last two years)
  • Important for several people on your course
  • On your reading list

Get an inter-library loan if it is:

  • Not already in the library (please check the library catalogue )
  • Urgent (needed in the next two weeks)
  • Out of print or difficult to buy
  • For a unique research project or dissertation

If you’re not sure which service to use, don’t worry, just fill in one of the forms. We will identify the most efficient way to get the resources you need.
