Public Relations & Communications: Using other libraries
The LRC is part of an Interlibrary Loan (ILL) network that allows us to borrow material from other libraries in the UK should we not have access to these items in our own library.
Please note: Inter-Library Loans service is currently unavailable for print materials due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Edinburgh Libraries Passport Scheme
The Edinburgh Libraries Passport (ELP) is a card which tells the library you are visiting that you are a genuine information seeker and that your requirements cannot be dealt with at your own library. It is of particular benefit to students and staff who are trying to obtain reference access to some of the specialist libraries in Edinburgh that are not members of other schemes.
