Inter Library Loans: Information for Other Libraries

Lending Policies

We are pleased to tell you that an inter-library loan service for electronic items is now available. Due to the continued closure of many libraries worldwide, we may be unable to process requests for physical items.

We supply loans and copies to all parts of the world. 

In general, library stock is lendable, except for most of the material in Special Collections. 

To make a request 

Please email 

For libraries which use the BLDSC billing system, the request code is CO/U-1 

Other libraries should note the following charges:

Article:    €9 or 1 IFLA voucher (International Federation of Library Associations)
Loan:       €18 or 2 IFLA vouchers

IFLA vouchers is the preferred payment method, but we can issue invoices and accept payment by cheque.
