Can't find the book you want?

If all copies of a textbook are on loan you can request a copy by clicking on the Place Reservation button underneath the title details.  You can also check to see if there is a copy available online as an e-book. 

If the book or journal article is not available from the library you can ask for an inter-library loan.  Come to the library counter, contact us on Chat or by email and we will organise this for you.
