Collection Statement

The Collection Statement gives direction and focus to the selection and collection practice of the UC Library. In accordance with the Collection Statement, e-books will be purchased if available unless you advise otherwise. Please refer to the Guide to E-Books at UC Library for more details on e-books.

Contact your Liaison Librarian for assistance.

Requesting Items for the General Library Collection

Selection of additional material is a joint process involving staff and the Liaison Librarians. If you identify gaps in the Library collections, or a lack of recently published items, in areas relevant to teaching and research at UC, please complete a Suggest a purchase form.

Checking the Progress of an Order

To check if the item you ordered has arrived, search the Library's Catalogue. Items "On order" have not yet been received; while items "In Transit" or "At Cataloguing" are being processed.
