Q. Can I request an inter library loan?


If you need a resource that isn't held by the library, we can often obtain it for you from another source (such as the British Library) as an inter-library loan.

The Inter-library Loan service can be used to request books, journal articles, theses, reports, conference proceedings, and individual conference papers. This service is free for staff and students (costs are covered by Library Services).


Before placing an inter-library loan request, please check Library Search to ensure that we don't already provide access to the material you require.

If you need a thesis, please check for availability through the British Library's EThOS service (UK theses) or ProQuest Dissertations & Theses Global (International theses) before submitting your request. If you need a large number of items for a research project, assignment, or systematic review, please contact your Subject Librarian to discuss your requirements first. 


To request an inter-library loan, please visit the Inter-library Loan webpage: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/library/find/inter-loans/
