How does it work?

What resources you can request, and how to request them.

What can I request?

Staff and students can request resources that they need for their study or research at Leeds Trinity University, such as:

  • books
  • ebooks
  • book chapters
  • journal articles
  • theses
  • anything else!

You can also suggest resources that you think the Library should own.

How to make a request

  1. Check Library Search to make sure we don’t already have the item
  2. Complete the requests form
  3. The Library team will review your request and let you know whether we can supply it, and in what format
  4. When your item is available, we will contact you again

The decision to supply requests is made on a case-by-case basis. We may not be able to supply all requests, depending on availability, price and relevance for our collections.

How long does it take?

We aim to review requests and contact you within two working days. We will try to give you an estimate of when your item will be available.

  • Books purchased from a supplier or borrowed from another library can take between one week and six weeks to arrive.
  • Electronic items (ebooks and PDFs) usually take between two days and one week to arrive.

Please try to request things as far in advance as possible.

How much does it cost?

There is no charge to you for requesting items.

If we supply an item by borrowing it from another library (an Interlibrary Loan), there is a £5 charge to renew it.

Who can't request resources?

Staff who want to request something for teaching purposes, or for their reading list, should use the reading lists service.

Students at our partner institutions should make requests to their home institution.
