Inter-Library Loans: Authorisation

A guide to our Inter-Library Loan (ILL) service

3rd and 4th Year undergraduate students must have chargeable ILL requests authorised by their course tutor before the LRC will process the requests.

Once a request is placed ILL staff will forward the details of requests to the requestor via email, which they can then forward to their course tutors for authorisation.

Course tutors should then return the email with confirmation of authorisation back to Library Services at

Requests which have not been authorised will not be processed.

Requests which have not been authorised after one month will be cancelled.

If you have any queries about this, or the ILL service in general, please contact the ILL team in the LRC at for more information.
