It's possible to add items to reading lists that will require a purchase and doing so will alert the library that you need something to be bought for the library. First check the item is not available already by searching for it on NELSON. If not then find the book online on Amazon or a publisher's website. Use the Cite it! button to add the item to your reading list. The system should recognise that the library does not own the item already and will prompt you to tag it with your reading priority. LLS staff will then purchase the item and replace the link on your list. 

Having your reading list linked to your module will help ensure enough copies are purchased for your students. 

We also have instructions available to install 'Cite it!' to your reading list.
