Inter Library Loans

If you need a book or journal article that is not available in the library it may be possible to order it through the Inter Library Loan Scheme.

The inter-library loans (ILLs) service is available FREE for all staff, postgraduates, research students and final year undergraduates.

Final year students and those in their second year preparing for dissertations may request up to 15 inter library loans per year; Masters students 30 per year.

There is no limit to the number of requests for PhD students and academic staff.
