Requesting new resources

Researchers and HDR candidates

Resource recommendations are available for UNSW Research staff or HDR candidates to support your research. Recommendations will be reviewed in line with the UNSW Library Collection Development Strategy, the research needs and the learning & teaching requirements of UNSW.

Journal recommendations are generally considered on an annual basis in August. Journal subscriptions are for the following calendar year. In the interim, UNSW staff and students can apply for an interlibrary loan.

Material published in the last five years, excluding current year, will be considered. For older material, staff and eligible students can apply for an interlibrary loan.

Recommendations may take between 6 and 10 weeks to be available.

Teaching staff

If you require resource recommendations for teaching, continue to add items to your Leganto course resources lists. For advice on using Leganto or to discuss your recommendations, contact your Outreach Librarian.

Order textbooks and recommended readings for your course.

UNSW Library's Service model for curriculum support can assist you in integrating resources and other tailored digital learning objects into your teaching.


Students should contact their subject-specialist librarian via Expert on demand to assist them in locating resources for their research and study.
