The Library doesn't have a book I need. Can I request that the Library buys a copy?
If you've searched for a book on the Library catalogue and it's not held in any of the three campus libraries, you can request a copy using the Interlibrary Loan service (from the Library home page go to: I need > an interlibrary loan).
We'll search for the book in other libraries and will email you when it arrives. This will usually be within 10 days, depending on the book's availability.
However if you think the Library should buy a copy of a book, you can suggest an item for purchase using the Library Materials Request form. The Library will consider your request, and if the item is ordered for the collection it will usually take at least 4-6 weeks to arrive.
