Academic staff may recommend print, audio visual and online materials for Library stock, whether they are new titles or additional copies of existing stock. For items required for a reading list please see the Reading Lists Online tab in this LibGuide.
For items not on reading lists please use the online form Order Request Form.
All items add to Library stock are assigned a loan category:
Journals and other serial purchases are handled separately and are normally ordered and cancelled on an annual basis as part of a review undertaken by teaching staff in partnership with your Academic Librarian.
Teesside University has a licence from the Copyright Licensing Agency (CLA), which extends the existing photocopying licence allowing us to be able to create digital copies of journal articles, book chapters, or images which will be linked to Blackboard for your students. Scanning under this licence can only be carried out by designated persons. For more information, please see: Digitisation Service.
S&LS subscribes to the database BoB (Box of Broadcasts) which allows staff and students to record future radio and television programmes for streaming via the internet. Streaming programmes already in its vast archive is also possible. However, where recordings are required onto DVD or CD, L&IS holds licences from the Educational Recording Agency (ERA) and Open University which allow University staff to make off-air video and audio recordings. You can make a recording for yourself or you can take advantage of the off-air recording service. The helpsheet below: Video and audio recordings gives more details about this service. It also details BUFVC's backup recording services for missed broadcasts, particularly useful if the programmes are not available via BoB.
