Library Guide for Academic Staff: Supporting you

Reading Lists

Please send reading lists to your Subject Librarian 2-3 months in advance of the course start date, or as soon as practically possible, indicating any new additions and changes.  Reading Lists are not automatically sent to the Library.

There are various ways to forward books orders. 

  • Send via email or telephone to your Subject Librarian.
  • Online coming soon.


Refresher library consultations with your Subject Librarian are an opportunity for you to brush up your online information-seeking skills and find out what the library website can do for you, or simply have your questions answered by a subject librarian.

Borrowing material

Most material in the library may be borrowed. Academic Staff receive extra loan allowances.  All staff may borrow 12 books for 30 days. Researchers may borrow 8 items for one month.

The Short Loan Collection consists of textbooks and other items which are required reading for students and are in heavy demand. Only two of these may be borrowed at a time and the one week loan limit applies to all.

DVDs may loaned out for a single week at a time.
