Academic staff – call for reading lists…

Stack of Library BooksReading lists for items for the start of semester 1 should be received by 22nd July 2016.

This will allow time for us to check stock and order additional or new titles as required.

Books on reading lists

Send your reading lists to libord@hw.ac.uk with the following information:

  • Title of course
  • Details of the items needed (e.g. author, title, ISBN, publisher, year, edition)
  • Number of expected students
  • If an item is a key or core text
  • Item(s) to be placed on the 3 hour loan system
  • If there is a reason to provide a print rather than an eBook copy as we will be checking all requests for eBook availability

Please note that if you also need copies of titles to be available at the Dubai and/or Malaysia campuses please contact their libraries directly as they will be placing their own orders for stock. They can be contacted at DubaiLibHelp@hw.ac.uk and MYLibrary@hw.ac.uk respectively.

Items on reading lists can also be requested using the Book request form at Suggest a book (the form may need to be opened in a new window depending on the browser used). Select yes from the drop down menu at the first question Is this book on a reading list?

Items to support wider reading

To request items to support student’s wider reading for research, dissertations, theses, projects etc again use the Book request form at Suggest a book and select no from the drop down menu at the first question Is this book on a reading list?. These items are automatically forwarded to your Library Representative for approval and will not be purchased until he or she has approved them.

Requests for items required for the start of semester should be received by 22nd July 2016 – requests received after this date cannot be guaranteed for the start of semester.

If you have any questions please contact Ellen Peacock, Aquisitions & Metadata Manager (e.peacock@hw.ac.uk Ext 3573)
