Library Implication Statement

A Library Implication Statement (LIS) is a detailed analysis of the Library’s ability to support a special topic, new course, subject, major or qualification.

The statement includes an analysis of current Library resources, an investigation of identified essential new resources, details of Reserve, Interloan Services and course coordinator and student support services.

A LIS must be completed for all new courses, subjects, programmes and qualifications, and for all new Special Topics.

The LIS template is available on the website of the Academic Office.

When you want to propose a course, please complete Part A of the LIS template and submit it to your Subject Librarian. Your Subject Librarian will complete Parts B and C of the form, and return it to you. You should then submit the form, together with the main proposal, to the Academic Office.
