Recommend a book for the library to buy
For books, e-books and any other non-subscribed material there is a purchase request form available via the My Library section of the My Manchester portal. Please highlight the My Library tab, choose ‘Library requests’ from the drop down option and click on the ‘New Purchase’ tab to submit your request.
Unfortunately the purchase request form on the portal does not currently support requests for material in non-Roman script: to request the purchase of non-Roman script material please contact email@example.com (Middle Eastern Studies) or firstname.lastname@example.org (East Asian Studies).
Service standards relating to the supply of new stock are available in Acquiring Library resources. Please note that during busy periods (for example, during the weeks leading up to the new academic year) some delays are inevitable due to the large volume of books being processed.
If you would like to request a book for the Library's special collections, please contact special collections staff directly at email@example.com.
