The Library welcomes suggestions for purchase for items to be included in our collections. Although we endeavour to meet your request we aim to provide a balanced and relevant collection for all community members and so we cannot fulfill all suggestions. 

Suggestions are considered by professionals within the context of broad appeal, content, budgetary constraints and adherence to our Collection Development Policy.

Please note the following Conditions:

  • Before making a Suggestion for Purchase, please check the Library Catalogue  for existing copies.
  • Acceptance of the Suggestion for Purchase form is a not a guarantee that the item will be purchased.
  • Preference will be given to titles published within the last 12 months. 
  • Suggestions for purchase will only be accepted from Library Members
  • If you wish to request an older book (published more than 2 years ago) consider placing an Inter Library Loan request through LibrariesAustralia. [A fee applies for ILL]
  • Suggestions for titles more than 3 months in advance of publication cannot be processed. Please submit request closer to publication date.
  • When a suggested title is ordered, a reservation is automatically placed for you and we will notify you when it is ready for collection.
