If the material you require for your studies or research is not held by the Sheppard Library or available via its electronic resources, the Inter-Library Loan and Document Supply Service is here to help you. Normally, we work with the British Library and other University libraries both in the UK and abroad, to obtain the books or articles you require for a small charge, where applicable*.
Due to the COVID-19 situation however, libraries have had to close and suspend their loan services, so we are unable to arrange the Inter-Library loan of physical items until the situation improves.
We are however, still able to offer a document supply service for articles and book chapters.
In addition, the £3 administrative charge (UK)* is suspended for the time being. This applies to all requests processed after 15/03/2020. Charges incurred on or before this date, including lost I.L.L. Replacement charges, will stand.
*Normally applicable to requests from Undergraduate, taught postgraduate (including MA, MSc, MProf) and MA/MSc by Research students.
The service is available to all registered Middlesex University students and UK staff with a current library registration.
If you are a distance learner and need to borrow books from Middlesex University Library stock, please see our information on e Book Supply and Postal Loans.
