Lecturers and librarians work closely together to buy the books you need for your assignments but we’d like you to have your say too!!

If there is a book that you would find useful that we don't have in our library collections, or if there is a book that you think we should have more copies of, then please let us know and we'll do our best to get it.

Here’s how it works…

Follow these steps:

  1. double check OneSearch to make sure we don’t already have the book in print or as an ebook.
  2. complete this online suggestion form. Your subject librarian will then look into purchasing your suggestion.

Please note that print books can sometimes take between ten days and six weeks before they appear on the library shelves.

Electronic books are usually available within one week.

Postgraduate or PhD student?

Do you need a book for your dissertation or PhD that we don't have? Alongside Get More Books you may also want to consider other options such as using our free Interlibrary loan service or the Sconul Access Scheme

Our students come to us from a diverse range of backgrounds and to reflect this we want to increase the range of books in the library which are written by people from a BAME (Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic) background. You can get involved by suggesting books through the Get More Books scheme.

Please note: The Get More Books online suggestion form is for current undergraduate and postgraduate students only.

If you are a member of academic staff, please contact your subject Library & Academic Advisor (LAA). You can find out who your LAA is on StaffHUB: click on the Quick Tasks tile, then click on the Library - Academics tile.
