Resources we buy for the Library collections reflect the teaching, learning and research requirements of the University and depend on the availability of funds.

We will buy digital versions of information resources in preference to print versions. The benefits of digital resources include equitable, 24/7 access regardless of Library opening hours, multiple simultaneous access to resources, and the ability to integrate them into online course content.
