To reserve books log in to your account. You need to be a library member to do this. Log in using your library membership number and PIN. Search for the book(s) you are looking for. Click on Place a reservation within the book entry and follow the steps. If multiple books are needed, tick them and use the link on the menu bar above the listing. Books not in stock at Education Centre Library can be sent from other libraries listed.
Please leave a few days for these to arrive. If a book is on loan, you will be notified once it has been returned. Books reserved from other libraries must be collected from, and returned to Education Centre Library.
If the book you need is not in stock, you can suggest it for purchase. Go to our Recommendation Form and include as much detail as you can.
Older and specialist books can be borrowed from the British Library or universities. Please note that there is a £5.00 charge for this service. Please go to our Request a Loan page.
Out of print books can often be bought second-hand. Prices are often (though not always) reasonable. Abebooks is a site where you can purchase second-hand books, though there are others.
