Inter-library loans - staff: Other services

About staff inter-library loans for books or journal articles not owned by the Library

British Library On Demand

If you need a document very quickly, for example, within 2 hours, you can register yourself with British Library On Demand to request it directly rather than using Newman Library’s inter-library loan service. You will be charged to use this service.

EThOS - Electronic Theses Online Service

If you need to access a thesis from another university, use the EThOS - Electronic Theses Online Service; the EThOS help page is a good starting point.


Copyright Cleared requests for Moodle

Do you need to give your students access to an article or chapter from a book on Moodle, but the library doesn’t own a copy? If so, you need our scanning service.

You should complete a scanning request form rather than make an inter-library loan request.

Requests for scans of items we do not own are charged at cost and can be funded through your library book budget with appropriate agreement. Costs can be significant and vary from item to item due to the copyright fees. Please ask your Academic Service Librarian for any further information.
