Resources on request (RoR)


Your Library, your resources on request 

From Monday 20th July, you can now request items via Library Search to collect from Adsetts Library. You will be able to request items to collect at Collegiate Library from Monday 27th July. You can also return Library items to either site. Please see the Click & Collect and Returning items page for full details.

If you cannot find and access the item you need using Library Search or your subject guide, please make a request using the forms on this page and we will do our best to provide you with online access or suggest alternative resources within one working day.

For books and other media use the RoR request form: bit.ly/libraryror

For journal articles use the Document Supply Services request form

We can provide access to electronic books, book chapters, journal articles or media such as film and TV recordings.

Please note you will need to complete the form for each item you require.

Resources On Request (ROR) is an emergency service that we have developed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we adapt our services to support your learning, teaching and research off-campus.

If you would like something added to the library collection for Autumn 2020 please Suggest a Purchase.
