We can borrow books and theses for you from other libraries if they have them. For this service we currently charge £24.20 to cover administrative costs and shipping.
If you need just one chapter from a book, let us know and we will be able to look for it on RapidILL, which is free.
Books take around 5-10 days to arrive by post, and we will email you when they are ready for collection.
If the item cannot be supplied by a library in the UK, we can apply to overseas libraries if you request this. We will contact you to confirm the price once we have found an overseas library willing to supply the item.
You can specify a deadline when you place your request, which we will use as a guide. However, we cannot guarantee we will be able to cancel requests once placed. If the item has already been sent by the supplying library you will be required to pay the full amount.
Where do I pick up the book?
Once your item is available we will contact you. Book loans can be collected from the Service Desk on the 4th floor of the Library.
How do I pay?
If you are required to pay, we will send you a payment summary with instructions on how to pay online. If you would like to pay in another way (for example when picking up the book) just let us know.
