Inter library loans FAQs

How many requests can I make?

  • UGs – 20 for the duration of your course
  • Taught PGs – 20 per academic year
  • Researchers and staff – 50 per academic year

How do I make a request?

Do I really have to print off the articles?  It’s not very green.

You must print off the articles. This is to comply with digital copyright, and is the only way the British Library can legally supply electronic articles. They have to email a link to the PDF, not the PDF itself.

What happens if I have problems printing the article?

  • Email the inter library loans team immediately at LIB ILLs Boots, so the link can be resent. This will not further reduce your allocation.
