Collection Suggestions

Although our collections are extensive, you may have suggestions to enhance our collections to further support research, teaching, or the general collection.

All new suggestions will be assessed against the Library Collection Development Policy.

New item suggestion for the Library collection

New items suggestions for our physical or electronic collections may include books, professional publications, audiovisual materials, journal subscriptions and database access.

Due to the substantial and ongoing cost of new journal and database subscriptions, requests will be evaluated in consultation with school librarians and they may be in touch to discuss your request further. Requests for single journal articles may be submitted though Document Delivery.
