More books

  • More books tablet only 2018

    New for Semester 2, 2018

    Can't find the books you need?

    Last year's 'More Books' initiative proved so popular that we are really pleased to be introducing it again this semester.

    The scheme aims to provide you, the student, with the books you need.

    We know from your feedback that you would like better access to the books you need for your course. More Books has been developed to do just that. Tell us what you need and we will aim to source the item for the Library as quickly as we can. You can order up to five items in print or electronic format. (Please note we are not able to purchase Kindle books as they are incompatible with our library systems.)

    More Books is available to all our students and will continue until funds run out - so get ordering now! Simply complete the request form.

  • Frequently asked questions

  • Although we have four libraries providing nearly 400,000 books and thousands more ebooks and ejournals, we wanted another way to ensure Brookes students were getting the study and research materials they needed.
    Simply complete the More Books request form. We’ll do the rest.
    Yes, use the same form as above.
    The scheme is available to all Brookes students.
    To ensure as many students as possible can benefit from the scheme, we have set a maximum of five items per user.
    We aim to source the item as quickly as possible as long is it in stock, or licensed, with our supplier. We will contact you if there are any issues with supplying your item.
    Electronic is likely to be the quicker option in almost all cases.
    We will email your Brookes email account. For print books, you'll get an automated 'library alert' email from our reservations team letting you know the book is ready to borrow. For ebooks, we’ll email you the link.
    For general queries about the scheme, contact one of the library help desks or the Academic Liaison Librarian responsible for your subject area. If you have a question about an item you’ve requested, email:
    Use or complete the feedback request that we will be emailing all users of the scheme when it closes. Your input has been central to the development of the scheme over the last two years so keep it coming!
