The Inter-Library Loan Service

The Inter-Library Loan Service

The Inter-Library Loan (ILL) Service aims to provide you with resources to support you in your academic studies or research, that are not available in the University of Northampton’s library collection. These items may be purchased for library stock or obtained from other organisations.

We also offer a Scan and Deliver service, to help you access journal articles (one article per issue) and book chapters (one chapter per book), that we only hold in print in our library stock. We will scan the requested article or chapter and email it to you.

If you are unable to find what you need in our print stock or via NELSON, you can apply to our ILL service to source the material for you. This service is available to all University of Northampton (UON) students, staff and researchers.

Requests can be made for the following:

  • Books
  • Book Chapters (one chapter per book to comply with copyright law)
  • Journal Articles (one article per issue to comply with copyright law)

If you require a UK PhD theses, you can request these directly via the British Library's EThOS (Electronic Theses Online) service.

Please note, we cannot supply media such as DVDs.
