  • Titles suggested for purchase will be considered by the library staff at each library.

  • The library reserves the right to allocate funds for the purchase of course materials first.
  • If the book is on order for the library, you should be able to search the catalogue for it and an order date will be displayed.


Typically, the number of books ordered is based on the number of students registered for a particular module or class.

Book numbers can also be limited depending on the cost, availability, format.

You can order books any time throughout the year. If you’re ordering for a module, submit your reading list early to allow sufficient time for the books to come into stock.
