Requesting Inter-library loans - update

In response to the reduced services offered by our suppliers, we will be offering a digital only service for the foreseeable future.

Electronic (PDF or SED) versions of articles, conference papers and single book chapters will continue to be sourced where possible, but we are unable to supply book or journal loans. Please note that it may take significantly longer to process requests at this time so please allow additional time for your request to be supplied.
