This service may be used by registered distance learners to request books currently held in Middlesex University's Library stock (we are unable to post books acquired via the Inter-Library Loans service).
Where possible, we will provide you with access to an e copy of your requested title. If an e copy is not available, we will post out a print copy.
N.B. Due to technical issues we have not been receiving requested books for packing and dispatching as quickly as we would like, so there have been slight delays in supply. These issues are being investigated and will hopefully be resolved soon. In the meantime, if you have any concerns please email us.
Please note that you must register with us as a distance learner and receive an email confirmation of your registration, before placing requests on books.
If this process has not been completed, any books you request may go to our on campus reservation shelves, instead of to us for packing and dispatching or consideration for e supply.
If your registration has been confirmed and you wish to request a book to be supplied to you, please click on the link below for a guide to finding books in 'Library Search' (Library Search' replaces Summon and the Library Catalogue).
If we are unable to supply an e copy, a print copy will be retrieved from the shelf and brought to us for packing and dispatching and we will email you to let you know when it's on its way to you.
We extend the initial loan period to allow for postage time and return but any subsequent automatic renewals made by the system, will be for the usual loan period of the item.
Please note that there is no charge for a postal loan but you will have to cover the return postage costs. We advise you to obtain a certificate of postage (receipt/waybill etc).
In addition, there are charges for the late return of materials and they are recorded on your library account.
Please pay by card by phoning 020 8411 6060(UK) 0044208 411 6060 (International) Mon - Fri, 9:00am - 4:50pm UK.
