Do we have the books you need for your studies? If not, please let us know!
More Books allows you to suggest books for the Library that can be added to our collection of print and e-books. Library staff will keep you informed on the progress of your suggestion via e-mail. If the book is on a reading list Library staff will check if additional copies are required.Use the link below to suggest books that will be helpful for your course.
If the Library decides to purchase a book based on your suggestion, please be aware of the following:
Ordering time - A book can take between two to six weeks to become available on the library shelves or online.
Cost - If a book costs over £100, you will be notified that the order has not been approved.
Inter Library Loan – Rather than purchasing a book, you can borrow a book not stocked by BU Library through the ILL service. More information here.
SCONUL Access Scheme – BU Library is one of many libraries within the UK that allows students and staff to borrow material from other university libraries. More information here.
Please note: The More Books scheme is for all except academic staff: If you are a member of academic staff, please read our ‘Ordering new resources’ page.
