Inter Library Loans service

The Inter Library Loans (ILL) service allows staff and students of Newcastle University to obtain material not held by the Library.  Undergraduate students can make 25 requests per year and postgraduates and members of staff 50 requests per year. External users should use the British Library’s On Demand Service or approach their local public library.

Due to Covid-19 all Inter Library Loan requests are free of charge.

Before asking for an Inter Library Loan:

  • please check British Library catalogue for full bibliographical details and include the Document Supply Centre (DSC) shelf-mark
  • for multi-volume works, please complete one request per volume
  • make sure you have credit on your ILL account
  • for UK and international theses requests, go to Finding and obtaining UK theses and dissertations

British Library Registration will be unavailable from 08.00 Monday 13 July, to 15.00 Wednesday 15 July, whilst they deploy major upgrades. During this period you will not be able to download articles requiring DRM Lite if you have not registered for an online account.
