Need a book or journal the library doesn’t own?
Researchers, emeriti and students affiliated with Leiden University may suggest books, journals, databases, video's and other types of library materials for purchase through the form Purchase Requests. Please whether it involves mandatory course literature and whether you prefer print or digital.
All requests will be reviewed by a subject librarian. A request is honored as it fits the collection policy and budgets permit. Please note it may take several weeks for an item to be processed.
Alternatively, it's possible to borrow books and request articles from other libraries through interlibrary loan. This usually takes up to a few days. For urgent requests, please mail or come into the library to speak directly with a staff member.
