Requesting Inter library loans

We are now able to offer an inter library loan service for physical items, in addition to the existing digital service for articles and chapters. 

Some physical items may still be difficult to obtain and there may be delays in supply due to the ongoing restrictions in place with postal services and at other libraries. Electronic (PDF or SED) versions of articles, conference papers and single book chapters will continue to be supplied where possible.

Please allow additional time (up to 10 days) for your request to be supplied.

If you are unsure what you can request please contact the Content and Collections Team.
