Your eBook requests: Now available to read online

Book Request Service

Staff and students can request new academic books for the Library to buy. In order to maximise availability and access, we will obtain eBooks whenever possible, but will purchase print copies where no eBook is available. We cannot purchase fiction.

This book requesting service is intended for books needed for individual study/research or to diversify the Library collection (for example, books which help us celebrate LGBT+ History Month or Black History Month).

Reading Lists

If you are an academic and want a resource for a reading list, please add to your lists as normal. Our Academic Librarian Teams can help you with these.

How to request

Please provide the following details of the book:

  • Full title
  • Author(s)
  • Year of publication
  • ISBN (if known)
  • Your Leeds Beckett University email address - we will use this to contact you about your request

Do you need a specific format, such as print, because of a disability?  If so, please say so in the email.
