Not in the Libary? - Inter-Library Loans

If the library does not have the article you need you can request an inter-library loan.  A copy of the article will in most cases be emailed to you within a 2-3 working days.  Books can also be requested via inter-library loan, but will take longer to arrive as they have to be posted.

  • All undergraduate students can request 15 inter-library loans per year.
  • All postgraduates and staff can request 30 inter-library loans.
