If the Library does not have the item you require, and it is deemed essential to your research or study (note the service is subsidised by the Library and Archives Service) we will try to obtain it as an inter-library request through the following process:

From the library catalogue Library Search click on the Sign In link in the top right hand corner of the page.

 

  • To request Journal and Newspaper Articles and Conference Proceedings

 

First ensure that you are searching under the Everything scope and type your article title in to the search box. Click the tick box for Also show results without Full Text access under the Refine my Results limiter on the right hand of the screen as highlighted below

If the Library does not have access to your item, you will find a No Full Text link beneath the title, click on that link and it will reveal another link to request a copy through Inter-library Loan

Clicking this link will open up an auto-filled request form. Please ensure that the article details are correct.  Select which library you would like to collect the article from (most articles are supplied electronically but we occasionally receive physical copies)

Finally, at the bottom of the form you will find a copyright declaration statement that you will need to have read and agreed to by ticking the box. Submit your request by clicking the Request button

 

  • To request Books and Theses

 

Ensure that you are searching under the Bangor University Library Collections scope and type in your book title in full. Please make sure that all the words are spelt correctly

If the library does not hold a copy of your book, you will see an option to Request Via Inter-library Loan / More Books.  This will open a request form for you to input your book details. Please select the Book tab and type in all the information you have about the book including Title, Author, Year of Publication and ISBN and the click Submit

 

  • If you are unable to locate your requested material in the library catalogue

 

If you fail to locate and request your item through the methods above, you can submit an Inter-Library Loan request through the link on library catalogue above the search box

You will need to select whether it is a Book or Article that you are requesting. Please carefully fill in the fields.  For books: Title, Author, Publication Date, Edition and ISBN and for Articles: Article Title, Journal Title, Year, Volume, Part/Issue, Pages.  Incorrect details, may result in the wrong title or edition being requested.

Once you have completed the form, selected a Library to pick up your request from and read, agreed and ticked the box for the copyright declaration, click Request and your request will be submitted.
