Book Suggestion Scheme
If you would like a particular book purchased for the library, you can make a book suggestion.
This scheme is open to all students and Professional Services staff and you can request up to 10 books per academic year.
College staff in academic departments should order in the usual way from their departmental books budgets.
Check whether a copy is already available via Library Search.
Each Book Suggestion is reviewed by the library and if appropriate, a purchase is made.
Examples showing where a purchase may be appropriate:
Extra copies or an ebook version of an in demand print title
Examples showing where a purchase may not be appropriate:
The Library has a digital first policy. If a book is available to purchase as an e-book, it will be purchased as an e-book wherever possible. This is to ensure maximum access to materials.
Professional Services book requests will be considered where they align to support teaching/research at the University.
Where a purchase is not appropriate, it may be possible to source the book via the Document Delivery Service.
The Document Delivery service can borrow books items that are not part of Exeter University's collections from other libraries and make them available to you for a limited period
Check the Document Delivery Guide for more information and to see whether you College/Department provides funds to pay for document delivery requests.
If you have any questions about this service, contact your liaison librarian.
