Postal Loans

A postal loans service is available if you would like us to post books to you (UK addresses only). This service is for anyone with a University student or staff card.

Postal loans can be used for whole books held in the Library stock.  For articles, papers or extracts from books, or books from other Libraries please use our Document Delivery service.

Using this service means you'll need to allow time for the return of items on loan and/or delivery of items. If you are working to a tight deadline, please contact your Faculty Librarian or Subject Enquiry Team for advice on possible alternatives.

Our form of delivery requires a signature on receipt so you may need to collect books if no-one is available to sign for them. We will however deliver to any address you nominate on your request form if your workplace, friend or relative is willing to sign on your behalf.

If you have any questions about this service please contact us.

Books from stock are posted out to you free of charge on the understanding that you are responsible for their safe return and any associated postage costs. We recommend you return books by a trackable delivery service as this provides proof of postage and cover for any items lost in the post.

To request a postal loan, complete the request form. You will need to login to the website. If this is the first time making a request, you will be required to register. As this form is used for a variety of requests, please take care to select the appropriate options.
