Read for Research offers the opportunity to research students and staff at City University London conducting research to suggest titles for purchase by City University Library Services
See our Read for Research Twitter hashtag for some titles ordered so far and to see what students think of the scheme.
Read for Research has been very popular and so far over 900 new items have been added to the Library stock since the campaign started in November 2013. It has also been quoted as a good practice example in a new book called Practical tips for facilitating research / Moira Bent.
City research students and staff can recommend general research and specific books for Library purchase on the Read for Research webform.
