Library update – ordering books

How to order books using Aspire

As the end of the financial year approaches, Library Services would like to encourage staff to take the time to think about your reading list for next year & get your orders in so the books can be waiting when students return in the new academic year.

Ordering a new book is simple:

  • Bookmark to your Resource List as normal — you can bookmark new books while browsing the publisher’s website, Amazon, Waterstone’s, or any other website. We’ve made a short video on how to do it, and instructions are also available on our website.
  • Make sure you’ve added a Library Note asking us to order it.
  • Request review from the review menu. If you’re ordering lots of books, you may want to add them all before doing this step.
  • Don’t forget to Publish your list so students can see it!

You’ll be contacted by Library Services shortly after to confirm that the order has been received, and the book will link up with Library Search as soon as it arrives.

More details on ordering are available on our website.
