Receiving and collecting requested ILL items
You will be notified when books and whole issues of journals arrive. They can be collected from the Library Helpdesk. They must be signed for and returned by the date shown on the slip inside. Photocopied articles, which you can keep, should be collected from the Helpdesk unless another form of delivery has been requested. Certain items may not be removed from the Library - they will be marked 'restricted access' and kept at the Helpdesk.
You can receive your articles by email
How long does the request take?
Most journal requests usually arrive within 2-7 days.
Most book requests usually arrive within 7-14 days.
Please note, however, that supply times depend upon the organisation supplying the request, and this is not within our control.
It is possible to obtain items urgently (i.e. within 2 working days). These have to be dealt with individually and usually cost considerably more to obtain. For an urgent request you should see one of the interlibrary loans staff, Monday to Friday, between 9am and 5pm.
