The Library offers an Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service to enable students and staff to obtain materials that we do not currently hold. Materials may be obtained from the British Library or from other institutions. 

We allow a certain amount of requests to be made without charge:

  • Students: 30 requests for free per year
  • UWL staff and research students: 50 requests for free per year

Requests over and beyond these limits may incur a non-refundable charge.

Requests from borrowers who have overdue charges on their Library Account, or who have long overdue items (from Library stock or inter-library loans), cannot be processed.

How to apply?

‚ÄčFull details of the item required must be included so that we can effectively process the request. 


Please contact us for any further enquiries regarding Inter-Library Loans.
