Inter-Library Loans: Home

A free request service for staff and students

Where we do not hold a resource in library stock, that you need to support you in your academic studies or research, you can make a request to our Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service. We will either obtain it from another organisation or purchase the item for our library stock.

Note: Due to a cyber-attack at the British Library there is a reduced ILL service. We will try our best to obtain ILL requests from other sources, however the technology outage at the British Library may prevent us from being able to complete some requests. The Inter-Library Loan Team will contact you via email if there are any problems with your request. More information can be found at the British Library's Knowledge Matters blog.

If you wish to obtain a digitised book chapter or article for your own personal research, which is held in our print library stock, please request via our Scan and Deliver service.

Academic Staff only: For resources that are required to support your programmes and modules directly;
