The Inter Library Loan (ILL) service enables you to request items, physical books, digital book chapters and journal articles that are not held at Plymouth University library. Your request will automatically be sent to other lending libraries to see if they can supply it. If they can, this will be sent directly to your inbox. If they cannot, we will look elsewhere before letting you know if it cannot be supplied.
ILL requests are paid for by the university. Please make sure that any ILL requests you make are for books or articles essential to your studies, and please also check that the library does not already hold the item, and that it is not available freely online, before placing an ILL.
Please make sure you are able to collect and return an ILL book in person.

If you need help accessing alternative resources, please speak to your Information Specialist.
You are not currently charged for making an ILL request. However, other fees apply.
The Inter library Loan is a service through which members of the University of Plymouth may obtain material that is needed for research that is not available in the current Library collections.
Please make yourselves familiar with the ILL policy before requesting an Inter Library Loan.
