Beckett Books Extra - Recommend books to the Library

This service allows students to recommend books, DVDs, CDs and computer games for their studies and research which the Library will purchase.

If you have a request for a journal or journal article please contact your Academic Librarian.

How to submit a recommendation

Before recommending:

  • You must be a Leeds Beckett student to use this service, if you are a member of staff please contact your Academic Librarian
  • Please check Discover or the Library Catalogue for the item first
  • If the item is on loan, place a Reservation as this is the quickest way to get access
Please note:
  • Popular fiction will only be purchased if it is for use on a course or for your research
  • eBooks will be purchased where available rather than print books
  • However, if you require a particular format (print or eBook) because you are a distance learning student or have a disability, please specify on the form
  • Only submit one recommendation per form to avoid confusion
