Interlibrary Loans and Using Other Libraries

What are Interlibrary Loans?

Leeds Beckett University's Interlibrary Loans service provides access to resources which are not held by the Library or other local libraries.

Photocopied journal articles, books and conference papers are obtained from the British Library or other UK libraries.

Information on obtaining dissertations and theses can be found on our Dissertations page.

Who can apply for an Interlibrary Loan?

Interlibrary Loans are available to staff and most students in support of your research.

Postgraduate Certificate / Diploma students and Final Year Undergraduate students are limited to 20 requests per year. Non Final Year undergraduates should contact their Academic Librarian if they require Interlibrary Loans.

Students registered with the Offsite Service may also be able to obtain Interlibrary Loans. Please contact the team at offsite@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.

The British Library is unable to supply Interlibrary Loans to commercial researchers. It is also a copyright infringement to copy from one for commercial purposes. Please ask Library staff if you need advice.
