Why does the Library not have books that are on my reading list?

The Library makes every effort to hold the key texts that are on reading lists but is dependent on Schools submitting reading lists to the Library before the start of the semester.
If you are a student, and after checking the Library catalogue, you find the Library does not hold a book title on your reading list then you can submit a request to purchase the book. This can be done by either sending us a book form or emailing the details to your Subject Librarian.
The Librarian responsible for your School will receive the request. If they think it is appropriate and book funds are available they will order the book, however funds are limited and so the Library may not be able to purchase every request. We will get back to you once we’ve received your request and let you know what action is going to be taken.
