Request formats other than books, articles, av material and websites

If you wish to request material in formats other than books, journal articles, av material and websites you may email your request to library.uos@sydney.edu.au or use the Add button and fill in the form details.

The following list will assist you to use the correct form for formats other than books, journals, av material and websites:

  1. To request a Music Score, use the New book reading form, select Musical Score from the Genre drop down menu and click on Locate in the Kind menu. You must include the publisher information, in addition to title and author information.
  2. To request a Legal Case, Legislation, News or Magazine article, use the New journal reading form, from the Genre drop down menu select Legal Case or one of the other material formats and click on Locate in the Kind menu. For Legal Cases, please supply the Reading title (i.e. Smith vs Jones), the Journal Title (e.g. Federal Law Reports), the Volume, Year published, Short title (e.g FLR) and the pagination (this will be a single page number which designates the starting page). For media neutral citations, leave out the volume number but add the case number as the pagination. The Court name goes into the Journal field.
  3. To request a Business Case Study (Emerald Emerging Markets), use the New journal reading from the Genre drop down menu select Journal Article and click on Locate in the Kind menu.

    Please note that the Library cannot include business cases from Harvard Business School (HBS) in the Unit of Study readings repository, due to the very short expiry timeframe that HBS allows for the presentation of this material. HBS does not allow academic libraries to purchase teaching cases.

As noted elsewhere: if you wish the library to purchase new material for your Unit of Study readings, email your request to library.uos@sydney.edu.au.
