Purchases for the library are made in accordance with our Collection Development and Management Policy. This indicates the ratios for purchasing books as follows:
Key texts - we commit to ordering at least one copy of a core textbook for every ten students per module, with a minimum of three key texts purchased to ensure that smaller cohorts have appropriate access to titles considered key texts
Recommended texts - where readily available, we commit to purchasing one copy of each recommended item for every 25 students per module. When books are out of print or unavailable, the Liaison Librarian will liaise with the relevant academic.
If importance options are changed, student numbers increase or new items are added, send the list for Review so the library can ensure adequate copies are in stock.
