Suggest a new book or journal

The Library welcomes suggestions for new book purchases or journal subscriptions that relate to current course offerings, teaching needs and research at UON.  To suggest a new book or journal, please email with as much detail as possible:

  • Books: title, author, edition, publisher, year of publication, ISBN
  • Journals: title, publisher, ISSN

Preference will be given to books and journals in electronic format where available.

Your suggestion will receive due consideration and you will be notified only if the suggestion does not result in a book order or journal subscription. Once available, the book or journal will be accessible via the Library Catalogue, NewCat+.

Academic staff urgently requiring new textbooks for new or revised courses should also email

Please include:

  • Course name and code
  • Which campus(es) the course will be offered
  • Estimated number of students

Please note that due to budget constraints it may be necessary for the Library to cancel an existing journal subscription in order to take up a new journal.
