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: Scanning for Teaching Service.
S&LS subscribes to the database BoB (Box of Broadcasts) which allows staff and students to access a wide range of radio and television recordings.
However, where recordings are not available on BoB we hold licences from the Educational Recording Agency (ERA) and Open University which allow University staff to make off-air recordings. The helpsheet below: 'Video and audio recordings: A guide for University staff' 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.
