Our Inter-library loan, More Books and Scan & Send services can help!

We know it can be frustrating when the book you need isn't available so we have two services to help you get the books you need for your course and your research:-

The More Books service is closed and will re-open in the Autumn.

Why use More Books?

Let us know the details using our online form and, if it's available, we'll purchase the book for the Library. 

More Books can take a while to supply, but once we have it, it will be available whenever you need it.

We recommend More Books for longer research or dissertation projects; however, if you require the book more quickly, we would recommend using Inter Library Loans instead.

See our Terms of Service and More Books FAQs for more information.

Why use Inter Library Loans?

We can utilise the collections of other academic and public libraries, as well as the British Library, to find the books you need. 

Inter Library Loans can be supplied fairly quickly but need to be returned to the lending library after a few weeks so are intended for one-off loans for shorter projects or research. We would recommend using More Books if you need the book for a longer research or dissertation project.

See our Inter Library Loans page and Inter Library Loan FAQs for more information.
