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 

You can find the acquisition form here. 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 help.

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