Each recommendation will be carefully considered.  Please note that the library preferences eformats where available.

Recommendations for software should be directed to Business Information and Technology Services by email to ithelp-is@uwa.edu.au.

    Ordering journals and other subscription resources such as newspapers

    Recommendations for new subscriptions can be made in consultation with the Faculty Team for your academic area.

    These recommendations should be received by September each year for commencement in the following year.

    Ordering books and other non-subscription resources

    You can make a recommendation for resources such as books or AV material by sending an email to orders-lib@uwa.edu.au.  Please ensure that you include both your details and the details of your order as shown in the table below.

    Before submitting a recommendation, you may wish to check OneSearch to see if the item is already held, or has been placed on order.

    Recommendations are processed in order of receipt unless they are essential for a unit.  Orders for essential items are treated as urgent and additional copies are purchased based on student enrolments.

    Material identified as essential is included in your Course Materials Online (CMO) unit list and added to the High Demand Collection if they are physical items.

    Requests to add essential individual book chapters or specific articles to your unit in CMO should be sent directly to cmo-essential-lib@uwa.edu.au

    Once your item has arrived, you will be sent an automatic email alert notifying you that the resource is ready for online viewing or for borrowing from the relevant library.
