**Distance learners have a combined quota for ILLs and article/chapter photocopies from existing Library stock.

All InterLibrary loan books must be collected from the Library. We are unable to post InterLibrary loan books out.

Any requests made over your quota will incur a charge but we will always check this with you before going on to process your request.
