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 at other libraries in response to COVID-19. 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.
