You can request items that the Library does not have using the InterLibrary Loans service. Books, journal articles, reports, conferences, theses, standards and patents can all be obtained from around the globe.

Please note: This service is for your academic study, teaching or research. Items for personal use should be obtained via the public library service.

The service is available to:

  • Academic and other members of University staff
  • Research, post-graduate and undergraduate students
  • Members of the Leicester Institute for Lifelong Learning.

If you are an undergraduate student, you will need to complete an authorisation form.

When completing the request form please fill in as many details as possible, this will make it easier and quicker to source your item.

Alternatively, you can suggest that the library purchase the book if you feel it would be a valuable addition to the collection. Use our More Books! online submission form and you'll receive an email letting you know whether the library will be buying the item you requested.
