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, through its Document Supply Service, or from other libraries by means of various reciprocal agreements.

Although this service can incur a high cost, 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 above your allocation will incur a non-refundable charge.  

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

Visit Inter-Library loan webpage for more information.

ILL requests can be made for the following resources:

  • Books
  • Journal articles
  • Conference proceedings
