Inter-library loan information for other libraries

Where possible we are happy to lend loanable material to requesting libraries within the United Kingdom and abroad, but regret we are unable to lend the following:

  • Special Collections material 
  • bound journal volumes 
  • single journal issues 
  • Reference only/library use only material 

We are usually able to provide photocopied articles within Copyright Licensing Agency guidelines. Special Collections provides a reprographics service.


  • Our thesis collection is reference only, but we may be able to lend them, or provide an estimate for an authorised photocopy upon request.
  • eTheses repository: includes all PhD theses awarded from 2009 onwards (unless under embargo), and a growing collection of pre-2009 theses
