The High Demand Collection gives more students a chance to use a book if we only have a limited number of print copies.
We can add printed items to the High Demand Collection if you predict demand will be particularly high. Students may consult these items on a 1-day loan.
We can also add items to the High Demand Collection if ordered copies have not arrived or demand is higher than expected.
We can add material that is held in the Library or unpublished material you own.
Make a request
Use the Library Discussion function in the reading list system to tell us if you think an item should be transferred from the main collections to the High Demand Collection.
What is in the High Demand Collection
We keep the following items in the High Demand Collection:
- books and periodicals transferred temporarily from Main and Core Text collections
- books bought specifically for the High Demand Collection
- CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray and VHS tapes
- Ordnance Survey maps.
High Demand items are shelved in the Laidlaw Library.
Removal of items
Due to space restrictions we expect to hold 10–15 essential items per course at any one time. We review and move items that are no longer in high demand from the collection.
If you have any queries, please contact us.
