Want something we don't have?

If you would like to access materials that are not part of the Library's collections, there are a few options available to you:

Student Book Suggestion Scheme: Complete the online form to request that the Library purchase a book that we do not have. Student can submit up to five requests.

Ask your Library Champion: Library Champions act as student contacts for the Library in each department. They have access to a budget for purchasing new library resources. Contact your Library Champion to ask if they can order the material that you need.
