Mt Helen Campus prescribed reading lists that are sent to the bookshop are automatically routed to the Library as well, so that we can check our catalogue for holdings. The Library will buy three copies of titles on prescribed reading lists.
SMB/Western campuses prescribed reading list items are only purchased if the subject convenor supplies the Library with the reading lists. The Library may purchase up to three copies of prescribed reading list texts, depending on student numbers. These items are placed on short (Textbooks) loan.
