Order a Book - staff

Order books for your research.

Please note that:

  • Due to remote working since March 2020 we’ve only been able to provide books that are available electronically.
  • From the end of April 2021 we will have a team on campus, part-time, to order books for your research that are only available in print. As we’ve been unable to order print stock since March 2020 we have a significant backlog.
  • Due to restricted capacity, a significant backlog and new labour-intensive workflows, we ask that you please select your orders carefully so that we can manage demand.

How it works

If the Library doesn’t hold a copy of the book that you need for your research, we will get it for you. We will provide books electronically whenever possible.

  • Is this a new request? If so, we will try and provide your items as e-books: please use the form below.
  • If you have previously requested an item that we couldn’t provide electronically:
    • For requests submitted before 1 April 2021, please resubmit any requests by using the form below (if you’ve sent more than five requests in the last year, we will contact you directly).
    • For requests submitted on or after 1 April 2021: no further action is required.
  • The order of priority for processing requests only available as print will be:
    1. requests that have been resubmitted;
    2. requests submitted since 1 April 2021;
    3. existing requests that have not been resubmitted.
  • You can see information about delivery times on the order form below:
