Reading lists

Reading lists are the quickest and easiest way to request new readings for your modules.

Reading lists provide a central source for all readings for any module ie books, articles, chapters and websites. Entries for books are checked annually for new editions and ebooks ensuring that the Library is kept up-to-date. We are immediately alerted to any new titles added which are then purchased as required. 

We can work with you to create and update your lists - this will ensure you, your students, and the Library has what is required. Further information on reading lists is available from the tile below, or contact us directly at

Book requests

For all other book recommendations that are not for reading lists, please contact your Academic Librarian with the details.

Other online resources

The Library reviews subscriptions to journals, journal collections and all other online resources on an annual basis to ensure best possible value for money, and to ensure the collection remains relevant to staff and student requirements.

If you have any recommendations for new journals or online resources, please contact your Academic Librarian. Your requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.

Personal orders

We can order non-library items for your projects or research wherever you work in the University. Contact Book Orders with the details of the item you wish to request, a full fund code, and e-mail authorisation from a signatory of the fund.

Inspection copies

Many publishers offer free inspection copies of book titles. Please check the publishers webpage to find out how to request a copy.
