Over 1,500 new items available thanks to you
If you're using the Library over summer take advantage of Order a book.
We understand how frustrating it can be when you can’t find the book you need, which is why we’re pleased to report that 1,617 requests have been processed through the 'Order a book' service since it launched in February.
Students across the University have been taking advantage of our scheme to get hold of a book when there was no copy available in the Library. The most popular subjects have been History, English & American Studies and Politics. You students in the faculty of Humanities are the real bookworms, as you make up almost 80% of our requests.
Around 75% of requests come from Postgraduate students, so if you’re still with us over the summer, don’t hesitate to put in a request if there’s a book that would help with your Masters or PhD; we’ll try our best to get hold of a copy.
The Library operates an e-first policy, as e-books are available 24/7, can be with you faster, don't take up extra shelving space, and are cheaper and more sustainable than the print alternative. Where content is available in a variety of formats, preference will be given to electronic.
