Please note that during the COVID-19 Library closure, we can only accept requests for articles and chapters that are available electronically. 

To request an article or chapter, please complete the Inter-Library Loan request form which can be found on the Inter-Library Loan Webpage.

When you make an online request, there are two templates to choose from:

  • the default template is for books, conferences, conference papers, non-UK PhD thesis & reports
  • the other is for journal articles or borrowing journal parts.

Please make sure you select the correct template by using the correct link.

Articles and chapters will usually be supplied by the British Library in DRM Lite format via a link that will be sent to you by email. You must register to use this service.

Remember to check  Library Search before making your ILL request to ensure that the library does not hold the book or journal containing the article you require.

There is currently no charge for Inter Library Loan requests for the duration of this Library closure period.
