Postal Loan Service

Postal Loan Service 

If you are not able to visit campus and are based in the UK, we can send you 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.  

You can request up to five items using this form:

We aim to dispatch available postal loanwithin one week of receiving your request.  This may vary depending on demand and requests will be processed in chronological order of receipt.  Requests for items already on loan to other are likely to take longer to be processed as we will need to wait for the items to be returned to us first.  This is a new service and request levels will be monitoredwe 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.  If your request is urgent, please specify the latest date you need the books when you make your request.
