Acquisition requests

Need a book or journal the library doesn’t own?

Leiden University and LUMC staff, students and professors emeriti may fill out a purchase requests form, to suggest Leiden University Libraries (UBL) to buy books, journals, databases, videos, and other materials currently not held by the library.

Please let us know whether the material is mandatory course literature, and whether you prefer print or digital.

All requests will be reviewed by a medical information specialist or subject librarian. Requests can be honoured when fitting the UBL collection policy and as long as budgets allow. E-books are usually available within a few days. E-journals, databases and print books may take several weeks to become available.

Interlibrary loan and document delivery

If an item is not available at the UBL, you can borrow materials directly from another library, or request a book loan or article through the UBL's interlibrary loan services.
