Cambridge University Library


We welcome recommendations for acquisition of books, journals and eresources that you think the Library should have. Make sure that we don't already have the item by searching for it in iDiscover or eresources pages.

If you want to make a recommendation for books (including requests for ebooks), please use the 'New book' form.  If you are interested only in a single chapter, please try our inter-library loans department first, who are temporarily offering free inter-library loans for Cambridge staff and students.

If you want to make a recommendation for printed music items, please use  'Recommend a new music title' form.

If you want to make a recommendation for journals (including requests for ejournals) or databases, please use the 'Recommend a journal or database' form.
