The Library doesn't have the material I need - how can I get access to it?

Covid-19 Update

Requested material will currently only be purchased if available electronically.



There will be occasions where the Library doesn't hold the material you need for your studies or research.  

Students and staff at The University of Manchester can request items using our Order a Book and Order an Article services. You can also use the Order a Book service for DVDs, CDs, and printed music (enter n/a in the ISBN field when completing the online form).

For teaching resources, staff should use our Reading Lists Online service.

If you require material that doesn’t fall into these categories please contact the Inter-Library Loans team directly.
