Staff: Inter Library Loan

Inter Library Loans

The Inter-Library Loan (ILL) Service allows users to borrow items such as Books, Journal Articles and Theses from other libraries. Material in electronic format, e.g. e-journal articles, can also be sourced using ILL.

Requests can be submitted by creating an ILL request by logging in to My Library and selecting your ILL requests from the left-side menu of your library record.

As a member of staff, your inter-library loans are paid for by your Department.  You are entitled to 10 free inter-library loans per year, this increases to 20 if are completing a PHD or supervising a postgraduate student. The allowances may be increased on approval by your Head of Department. Please note that the library will request approval from your Head of Department or Central Services Manager for all book and theses requests and any journal requests costing more than €20.
