Inter-Library Loans

The Inter-Library Loans Service provides postgraduate research students, researchers and academic staff with access to information resources not held by our Library. Undergraduates who wish to use the service must first contact their Subject Librarian.

We also supply material from our own stock to other libraries.

If you have searched our Library Catalogue and we do not have a book, journal article or other material you require for your research, we can apply to another library for the item.

Please note that in order to comply with copyright requirements, you must declare as part of the request process that the material you are requesting is for your own personal research or study and will not be used for any commercial purpose.

Please allow up to two weeks for the item you have requested to arrive.  Also please note that Inter-Library Loans cannot be renewed, so before requesting an item from another library please ensure that you will have time within the 3 week loan period to read it before it's sent back.

Patrons should be aware that books borrowed under inter-library loan are not the property of the Library and are loaned to us by partner institutions subject to conditions. The ILL system works on trust and in order to maintain a good relationship with our partners we would ask patrons to respect the rules.
