Can't Find the Book You Want?


Is the book you want out on loan? Ask us to keep it for you when it is returned. You can reserve online too - search for the book in the library catalogue, log in and click Reserve. 


Is the book you want at another library site? Ask us to have it sent to your campus library for you to collect, usually the next day. Or borrow it yourself from the other library, just remember to take your student ID card. 


Do you know of a good book that we don't have? Contact your subject librarian. If we like it too, we may order it and then let you know when it arrives.
