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.
  • 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 calling +44 (0)1332 591215.

Please note that there are no refunds, even if the item is found to be in stock or available electronically.


The majority of Inter Library Loan requests are submitted online, however if you are unable to use the online request form, you may complete a card request form. These are available at all of our Library Loans Counters.

Alternatively, for further assistance, please contact the Library on +44 (0)1332 591215 or at
