Inter Library Loans at Chesterfield

The Inter Library Loans Service is now available to staff and students at Chesterfield

What is the Inter Library Loans (ILLs) Service?

If a book or journal is not available in any of the University of Derby libraries, it may be possible to obtain a copy from another library by submitting a request through our ILLs service. 

How much does an ILL cost?

  • Undergraduate students on year two or above of their degree course may receive twenty ILLs per academic year at £2.00 per request.
  • For Postgraduate students on taught Masters courses there is no charge for the first twenty requests. Further requests may be obtained at £2.00 each.
  • There are no charges for staff or researchers.

Please note that the £2.00 charge is non-refundable, even if the item is subsequently found to be in stock or available electronically.

What should I do first?

  • Before submitting a request, you should pre-pay at any of our Loans Counters, or a card payment may be made by calling the Library Enquiry Service +44 (0)1332 591215.
  • Always check the Library Catalogue and E-Journals Finder to ensure that we do not already have the item in stock before you submit your request.
  • If you are requesting a journal article, please read the Secure Electronic Delivery guide.
