If all copies of a book are on loan you can make a request.
If you have a book on loan that is requested it will need to be returned within 7 days, or by the existing due date, whichever is sooner. These are referred to as recalled loans.
If you need a book or article that we do not stock then you may be able to make an Inter Library Loan request. Inter Library Loans (ILL) are lent from alternative academic libraries. These items can have varying due dates and in some cases are reference only.
The request system is in place to ensure all users have fair access to library stock.
