Requesting new Library resources

Departments are responsible for letting the library know which books to buy or which journals we should subscribe to. Members of academic staff should ensure that the library stocks any resources that their students are expected to use.

The Library must receive a copy of all reading lists issued by academic staff to students for taught modules. The deadline for reading list submissions ahead of the 2018-19 academic year is the 1st July 2018.

Submit your reading list

Non reading list titles can also be requested for the library to purchase - these should be sent via the appropriate departmental library representative, as listed below:
