Click and Collect Service
Our Click and Collect service is available for printed items held in all libraries except the Arts and Social Sciences, Chemistry, Medical and Veterinary Sciences Libraries, which are open for self-selection and self-issue of books from the shelves.
The service is available for items that are in stock and not available in electronic format.
This form will allow you to request up to 5 items. Items will be available for collection from the Arts and Social Sciences Library during opening hours.
Postal Loan Service
If you are not able to visit campus and based in the UK, we can send you up to 5 books that are not available electronically via our postal loans service. There is no charge for the service as the cost of posting items to you will be met by the Library.
We aim to dispatch postal loans within one week of receiving your request. This may vary depending on demand and requests will be processed in chronological order of receipt. This is a new service and request levels will be monitored; we may need to temporarily suspend taking requests at short notice if demand is high to prevent lengthy waits for fulfilment.
Postal services in some areas of the UK are being severely impacted by COVID-19, and users could experience delays in the receipt of items. We recommend contacting your Subject Librarian to explore electronic resource options before submitting your request.
