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).

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.

The level of service we can offer depends on the status of The British Library and other libraries from which we borrow items. As a result of the current pandemic, print interlibrary loans are currently not available but please still submit your request so we can find alternatives for you.

Please check our collections before making your request:

Complete this online form to make your request; you will be prompted to login with your University user ID and password. 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.
