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.

Diversify Your Curriculum

LGBT History Month

We're looking for student recommendations that increase the range of books we stock by LGBT authors. Books that celebrate and tell the history of LGBT people are also warmly encouraged.

Follow the instructions below and choose 'diversifying the curriculum' as your reason for recommendation. 

Our Focus On page has more information on just some of the Library resources available to students and highlights the research of Leeds Beckett staff in this area

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
