Inter-Library Loans

The Inter-Library Loans service enables you to get items related to your academic studies that we do not have in our own stock. 

We may buy an eBook to meet a request.  In a small number of cases it is not possible to get requested material.

Check access and auto-complete the online form

  • Please seach for the item below to see if we already have access to the full text
  • If the item appears in the search results but says citation online (not full text), click on the search result anyhow
  • You should then see an option to request this item via the Inter-Library Loan service. This will attempt to auto-complete the inter-library loan request form for you.
