Inter-Library Loans and Document Delivery Service

The Inter-Library Loans Department welcomes requests from international libraries. We only accept IFLA vouchers as payment for international requests or payment through IFM when you use Worldshare/ILL. Our standard charges are as follows:

  • Book Loans (only within Europe) 2 IFLA Vouchers
  • Scan / PDF  (>10 pages) 2 IFLA Vouchers
  • Scan / PDF  (each following 10 pages) 1 IFLA Voucher                 

We regret that we are unable to accept any other forms of payment for inter-library loans from overseas libraries.

The loan period is one month from the date of dispatch, but all items are subject to recall if reserved by another user. All loans are strictly "for use in library only”.

The loan may be renewed at no extra charge, providing the item has not been recalled. Please contact us by email if a renewal is required.
