    • Please note that during the current period we are prioritising the purchase of e-books wherever these are available
    • Due to covid restrictions, new purchases can take up to 4 weeks to arrive at the library
    • You should allow plenty of time between suggesting a purchase and requiring it for your work. The Library cannot be held responsible for the later arrival of titles.
    • We cannot accept purchase suggestions from external borrowers, or individuals who are not affiliated to Glasgow School of Art.
    • All requests must originate from the person who requires the title. Please do not submit requests on behalf of others or, in the case of tutors or supervisors, your students.
