Suggest a Book – Your Great Suggestions!

The Library’s Suggest a Book service has now finished for this academic year. It has been great receiving your book title suggestions which we have then purchased for you to use and support your studies here at Bucks.

Your suggestions have been fantastic and here are just a few of them.


Thank you for making use of this service from the Library. We hope to offer this service to you again in the new academic year. Please check on Blackboard and our Library web pages for when it is available. Or if you have any more great book suggestions in the meantime, get in touch! Enjoy the great titles you have chosen!


Bookmyne – your library on the go!

Do you use your mobile phone to look up books when you wander the shelves in the libraries? Take a picture of the computer screen before going on the hunt? We know LibrarySearch doesn’t like mobile interfaces much and taking photos of computers is never ideal, but we have a solution!

Bookmyne is a great app that will make searching for books or looking at your library record SO much easier on your phone.

You can get the app on Google Play or through iTunes App store. We even have a web page with instructions on what to do:

So there we go, a simple and free app that will make your book searches that much easier.
