Key Christmas dates for Inter-Library loan requests.

Key Dates:

Fri 15 Dec 2017

If your Inter-Library book loan is due for return by Fri 15 Dec, please ensure you return it promptly, or request a renewal. Remember that renewals are not always possible, and you may still need to return the item.

Mon 18 Dec – Thu 21 Dec 2017

  • We will be offering a limited service during this time.
  • We are very unlikely to be able to process book loan requests, as most of our suppliers suspend their loan service the week before Christmas.
  • We may be able to source limited journal articles/ book chapters (document supply)

Fri 22 Dec 2017 – Tues 2 Jan 2018 

  • The Inter-Library Loans service will be closed from 2pm on Fri 22 Dec, and we will reopen on Tues 2 Jan 2018. No requests will be processed during this time, and the office will be closed.
  • We will not be able to process any renewal requests during this time.
  • We anticipate a backlog of requests upon our return, so delays in processing will be likely, with the aim to be back to our normal levels of service from Mon 8 Jan.
