The Learning Resources Guide: Stationery Supplies

Staff Stationary Supplies

Staff Stationery Supplies


The Learning Resources Team have a cross-college role regarding the purchase and acquisition of new stationery.

The general procedure is as follows;

  • At specific times throughout the year, our Librarian (Allyson Watt, Email - ) blank stationery request forms to section leaders across the college.
  • Each section leader may use their form to specify his/her stationery requirements, before returning it to Allyson.
  • Allyson (or an other LR team member) will place the order with the supplier (usually Lyreco), and in a very few days, the stationery will be delivered to the most appropriate LR Centre.
  • A member of the LR Team will check the contents before arranging for the package to be forwarded to the Section Leader.

If you require stationery to support your work then we recommend that you liaise with your Section Leader so that your requirements may be properly considered.


Ad-hoc requirements

Each LR Centre carries a stock of stationery items that is generally intended for sale to our learners at the Help Desk.  Of course, staff may also purchase stationery items in this way. 

If you wish to purchase items directly from the Help Desk then you may either pay;

  • with cash
  • a debit card at the main building reception (minimum purchase = £1.50)
  • by completing a brief 'stationery request form' - you will need to supply your departmental cost code, and normally have the form counter-signed by your manager / departmental budget controller.  The cost of the items will ultimately be debited from your departmental budget.


Please note that stationery stock levels within  the LR Centres are not high as we are generally only geared up to cater for individual student purchases.  It is helpful (and often cheaper) if curriculum staff acquire the bulk of their stationery requirements via their line managers / standard ordering system,  rather than directly from the LRC Help Desks.
