Request an Inter Library Loan

Before submitting your Inter Library Loan request:

  • Check the library catalogue and the E-Journals Finder to ensure we do not already hold the item in one of our libraries. We are unable to supply items that are already in stock.
  • Ensure that you are eligible for Inter Library Loans by checking our ILL Guide for students and staff.
  • Second and third year undergraduates will need to pay in advance before submitting an ILL request. The charge is £2.00 per item requested. Payment can be made at any Library Loans Counter or, by telephone, to +44 (0)1332 591215. Please note that there are no refunds, even if the item is found to be in stock or available electronically.
