The Library provides access to a large range of resources, including books, ebooks, journals, DVDs and more. Library and academic staff work together to make the information you need for your studies and research available, for example through reading lists. However, we understand that
sometimes users need additional resources. Request a resource has been developed to make it easier for the Library’s users to tell us what they need and help us to get the resources to them.
If you are an undergraduate student, postgraduate student, or researcher, then you can use the Request a resource service to tell us what resources you need. This service also incorporates the interlibrary loans service.
If you are a member of staff and require resources for teaching purposes, please contact your Liaison Librarian.
Requests for books, ebooks, book chapters, journal articles, theses, or other resources needed for your study or research at the University, or that you think the Library should own, can be made through this service.
1. Check Library Search to make sure that we don’t already have the item you’d like to request.
2. Complete the online Request form.
3. The Library’s Acquisitions team will review your request and will contact you. Please note:
We aim to respond to requests within two working days.
Please be aware that print items can typically be supplied within ten days to six weeks, and ebooks can typically be made accessible within two working days, though it may be possible to supply urgent items more quickly.
Please complete the Request form as far in advance as possible.
