Changes to Inter Library Loans

When requesting an Inter-Library Loan, you no longer need to obtain agreement from your department or  include an authorisation signature on the form.   However you must still sign the form yourself, as this is a copyright requirement.

Each member of the University has an annual quota, as follows:

  •  Staff & researchers = 40
  • Taught postgraduates = 10
  • Final year undergraduates = 5

All ILL requests are subject to the discretion of the Library & in order to be free of charge will need to be for material in support of the teaching & research of the University, so the service will not be provided for personal hobbies etc. unless you pay. If  you reach your quota, you will need to discuss any future ILLs with ILL staff.
