Interlibrary loans

If we do not have the item you are looking for we will try to get it for you from another library through our interlibrary loan service (ILL).

Services may differ due to COVID-19. Please see our FAQs for more information.

We can obtain a range of materials for you including books, issues of journals, journal articles, single chapters of books, conference papers, reports, patents and theses.

Please check our collections before making your request:

It can take a few days to a few weeks to get books and articles from other libraries.  It may not be possible to get some material so we will contact you if we are not able to get what you have asked for.

There are two ways you can make a request:

  • Online form - you will be prompted to login with your University user ID and password
  • Printed request form - print, complete, and sign the form, then post it to us at: Interlibrary Loans, The Murray Library, Chester Road, Sunderland, SR1 3SD
