Purchase requests

Purchase books for your department

Make direct purchases for your department using a standard RCH Purchase Requisition form. We recommend the book suppliers JR Medical Books and the University of Melbourne Co-op Booktopia Textbook Finder (acquired the Co-op in 2020).

Suggest a book or journal for the Library to purchase

We allocate a portion of our budget each year to the purchase of new books and journals, with a preference for ebooks and online journals where possible.

Journals are typically purchased in bulk packages, but individual title subscriptions are also possible. All available subscriptions are listed in the journals database.

New books are listed in the monthly Library Update accompanied by a summary description. All available books are contained in the catalogue.
