For Subject Coordinators, Tutors and other teaching academics

Ordering new resources

How to order new resources (items not held by the Library):

Via Subject Readings

If you use Subject Readings, add the citation details to your reading list. When you submit your list, the Library will recognise citations not in our collection. For ebooks/books we'll aim to purchase it, for articles/book chapters we'll source a copy via Document Delivery. For support creating a reading list and adding resources, see the subject readings guide for staff.

Via Library SEARCH

Search for the resource in Library SEARCH. Ensure you tick 'Show results outside UOW Library' in the left hand panel. Click the item's title. Under 'How to get it', complete the Purchase Request form or Document Delivery form (for article/book chapters).

Contact us for guidance
