Using Primo

A guide to using the ANU Library search and discovery platform

Suggesting a Library purchase

The ANU Library is happy to consider recommendations from the community to purchase resources for our collections. You can send any of your suggestions via the Purchase Request form in Primo.

You will find the form by clicking on the ellipsis at the top of the Primo search page.

The menu will display all options - select Purchase Request to open a form.

Make sure you are logged in and then fill in the form with as many details as you can - this will help library staff find purchasing options, and make decisions on whether the acquisition will proceed.  

FOR TEACHING STAFF: If you are an academic or teaching a course please add details about the number of students taking the course (this will determine how many copies or user license the library should purchase), the course code, and tick the box indicating if it will be required for Course Reserve.

Remember to check the Library Catalogue before making a Purchase Request as it may already be in the ANU Library collection.
