Preparing Reading Lists: Guide for Academics

This is a step by step guide for preparing your reading lists for 2021

Suggest a Purchase Form

If you wish to request an updated edition of a current title on your Reading List or to request a purchase of a book/e-book/e-journal/database or other online resource, let us know. Depending on the resource type, availability in an appropriate electronic copy can be an issue i.e. lots of e-books available to an individual customer, are not available as e-books to libraries etc. Cost is also a consideration in all purchase requests. For more information, check out our FAQs on e-books.

  • Have details of the title ready when filling in the "New Purchase Suggestion" form. You will need the exact title, ISBN and format (print or ebook) as well the course code of the module you are requesting the title for.
  • Only certain fields (marked in red) are required, but the more information you enter the easier it will be for the librarians to find the title you're requesting. The "Notes" field can be used to provide any additional information.
  • You will also be asked to suggest a number of copies to be purchased. Note this will be reviewed by the acquisitions team when ordering the title if available.
  • You will receive an email when the library processes your suggestion.

Please note this is the best way the library can accept new purchase suggestions.
