Looking for resources? Use Library search (the new name for SOLAR).

If you feel a book would benefit other students (for example useful for a module rather than for a specific dissertation) your first point of contact will be your Library Champion. Whether it's a print or an electronic copy, your Library Champion can put an order in for the Library to buy it out of their own dedicated budget – the only restriction is that it has to be bought outright and it cannot be something the Library has to pay a regular charge for, such as an annual subscription, so you wouldn't be able to request journal articles or journal subscriptions through the Library Champion scheme. 

Books and DVDs can also be requested using the You Want It, We'll Get It service. This is a free service for staff and students, and allows you to request items for the library to purchase or to request additional copies of books we already have. Simply fill in the request form here.

Alternatively you can use our free document delivery service to request books and journal articles not held in Library stock but which you may need for your study or research. To request books and journal articles you can fill out our request form. The number of Document Delivery requests per person per year depends on if you are an undergraduate, postgraduate (research), postgraduate (taught) or member of staff. For more information look in the Document Delivery section of our FAQs here. Please note CDs and DVDs are not available through Document Delivery.
