Books for your second semester courses/modules

14 Nov 2013

Please request books for your second semester courses/modules by 2 December 2013, to enable the University Library to do all they can to have these items ordered, delivered and processed in time.

To order, please either complete the New Purchase Request facility on MyManchester or for multiple orders please send to:

If you are currently experiencing delays in receiving ordered items, I would like to apologise and explain. Switching to a new Library Management System in July 2013 which operated properly during testing, but fell far short of expectations once semester had started, has resulted in a backlog of book orders. Unfortunately, similar issues are also affecting other UK universities who moved to the same system. We are working hard to reduce both the backlog and current delays and have implemented a number of immediate measures to support this.

Your Academic Engagement Librarian is ready to help if you have any queries. Thank you for your support.
