Can the Library buy an e-book I have found on Amazon (or another platform) for my course?

Library Services can only purchase books and e-books from approved University suppliers. 


University libraries must purchase an institutional licence for e-books, as this allows access for multiple users in an academic setting. 


The Library is unable to purchase e-books that are sold on commercial platforms for individual users.
