Not in our collection

Can’t find what you are looking for? No problem!

Although the Library’s collections are extensive, sometimes you might not find the resource you are looking for. Don’t worry! There are a number of ways to get access to the resources you need, wherever you are. 

  • Is the e-journal article you are looking at requesting payment for access?
  • Have you tried looking for the article in Library Search or installing the Library Access browser extension?

Order an article

If you are still unable to access the article you can request it through our Inter-Library Loan service, which provides online delivery of journal articles.

Order a book

Can’t find the book you are looking for in Library Search? Try our Order a Book service and we will look to add the book to our collections. It is easy to do and e-books will usually be available three to five working days from the date of order approval.

If you need to contact us about your order, please email uml.acquisitions@manchester.ac.uk giving the full details of your order.

We operate an e-first policy when adding to our collections so that digital copies will be available for all of our students to use and you can access our resources online whenever and where you need them.
