This is a service that provides access to materials not available within our own stock or within Edinburgh, enabling the Library to borrow items and obtain articles from the British Library and other libraries within the UK on your behalf. It is sometimes known as 'Document Supply'. You can request academic books, journals, journal articles, conference proceedings, theses, and reports. Books and other physical items usually take a few days to arrive, so please plan accordingly. If requesting a article, it will usually be sent to straight to your Edinburgh Napier student email account.
This service is free to Edinburgh Napier University students and staff. To make an Inter-Library Loan request, simply fill out our online form.
Can't find what you want in our libraries? Edinburgh Napier staff and students can use a number of other libraries. If you are not sure, contact us to confirm if you are eligible before visiting another library.
This scheme allows students and staff from UK universities to use other university libraries. The level of access Edinburgh Napier members can have depends on your status here:
