If the material you require for your studies or research is not held by the University's Sheppard Library or available via its electronic resources, the Inter-Library Loans service is here to help you. We work with the British Library and other University libraries both in the UK and abroad, to obtain the books* or articles you require.
*Books on Inter-Library Loan must be collected from and returned to the library in person. For this reason, book requests can only be accepted from UK registered students and staff. Electronic delivery of book chapters may be possible.
Please note: A £3 administrative charge (UK)* will apply for requests from undergraduate and taught postgraduate students.
*Dubai - 15 AED, Malta - 4 Euros, Mauritius - Rs. 125 (Mauritius students - your request will not be processed until the charge has been paid).
This is a subsidized cost, as we are currently charged £13.95 for each book and £10.38 for each article supplied.Items acquired from overseas incur even higher costs.
NB You will still be liable for the administrative charge if your request has been processed but you no longer require it, as we will have already have incurred charges from the supplying library.
Requests are accepted and charged according to the service rules explained in the box below.
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 Postal Loans.
