UWS Library is the major provider of scholarly resources and associated services and is conscious of its primary responsibility to support the learning, teaching and research endeavours of the University. An extension of this service will now include the purchasing of all books and journal subscriptions required as working tools or professional reference by staff at the University.
The Library negotiates discounts with major Library suppliers and these will be applied to all associated internal budgetary transfers. For audit purposes, the Library is responsible for recording and tracking all books and journals acquired using operating funds, internal or external research funds and/or donations. All books and journals acquired remain the property of the University.
Where an exception has been granted allowing purchase of books / journals on Corporate Mastercard, details of the book/journal must be sent to the Library for recording purposes and to provide an annual reconciliation report.
