We welcome your suggestions for titles you think should be in our collection.


The acquisition form can only be used by ZB users who have a valid library card number. Unfortunately, we cannot acquire all the items that are suggested to us. We decide on the basis of our acquisition policy whether the proposed title fits into our holdings.

Completing the form 

Please provide us with all the information you have about the title in the fields on the form. The more detail you can give us, the easier it is for us to process your suggestion. You can also upload a picture of the book as an image file (ideally the title page rather than the cover). Thank you for your assistance.

If you have any questions, please write to us at anschaffungen@zb.uzh.ch.




Haben Sie ein Foto des gewünschten Mediums? Dann können Sie es hier hochladen. Idealerweise sind Titel, Autor, ISBN erkennbar.

Achtung: Wir können das Exemplar nur für Sie reservieren, wenn Sie bei der Bibliotheksplattform SLSP registriert sind. Hinweise zur Registrierung finden Sie unter "Anmeldung & Ausleihe".
