Do you need MORE BOOKS?

(13 February 2017)

Struggling to get hold of the book you need? Tell the Library and we’ll buy more books!

We’ve created an easy and direct way to tell the Library which resources you can’t get hold of, so we can purchase more books and e-books to meet your academic needs. More Books is available to all Durham University staff and students, all year round.

Through feedback gathered from the Library Survey and the National Student Survey it is clear that students and staff would like the Library to have more of the books and resources they need.

To request a book, simply fill out the form on our More Books webpage. We’ll then contact you to let you know whether or not the Library will be purchasing the resource.
