Requesting Inter library loans

We 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 Acquisitions team.

 

Service update

Due varying postage and supply times we anticipate some delay in satisfying requests - we’d advise submitting your request for print items as soon as possible before the 12th December to ensure it is processed.

Any requests for print items received on or after 12th December 2022 will not be processed until 4th January 2023.
