The Inter-Library Loan service will continue to operate but in a limited capacity. We can only supply items that can be delivered electronically such as journal articles and book chapters.


We cannot currently request print items but if there is a specific chapter in a book that you need, please give the chapter details, including title, page numbers and authors where applicable, when making your request (the chapter details can be added to the note field of the online book request form). We will then attempt to acquire a digital copy for you if the book is held electronically by one of our partners.


If you need a whole book, you can submit a request through our More Books service. If we decide to purchase the book based on your suggestion, we will then attempt to purchase it electronically.
