What happens at Library review

Library staff will check every citation to ensure sufficient resources are in place to meet student demand. We will take the following criteria into account:

  • Size of class

  • Importance of title (Essential/Recommended/Further Reading)

  • Past borrowing statistics


We will purchase new or additional copies to meet student demand


We will assign appropriate loan periods to print copies to meet student demand (Short Loan, 1 Week Loan etc).


When digitisation requests are made, we will add the link to your reading list. 


We will monitor reservation requests and take action if demand is high. 


We will check all links on a list to ensure they work. If broken, we will fix it for you or contact you by email.


We will perform a copyright check to ensure compliance with Copyright Licensing Agency rules. We will suggest alternative options to avoid copyright infringement.
