Can't get the item you need?

Have you searched the Enterprise catalogue or Summon discovery service and not been able to get the item you need? We can help! Here's how...

Students studying on the 2nd Floor of the Libraryall the Library copies on loan?

  • Place a hold - we'll keep the first available copy for you and email you when it arrives
  • Check for an e-book version - where possible we get e-book versions of all key texts, find them on the Enterprise catalogue and Summon
  • Check for a Short Loan copy - these can be borrowed overnight to ensure everyone can get hold of them

Useful book for your course not in the Library?

Need a book or article for your assignment?

  • Request an inter-library loan - if we don't have a book, article or other publication that you need for an assignment we will try to get it from another library
