We welcome requests to supply inter-library loans to other libraries:
We can obtain books, journal articles or theses which are not held in Roehampton University Library.
Inter-Library Loans free allocations for the academic year 2010-11
(new requests or renewals) are as follows:
When using your free ILL allocation please consider:
A standard ILL request is:
• A book or whole journal request
• A Secure Electronic Delivery/photocopy of article or chapter request
• A renewal request
A thesis request is equivalent to 3 standard ILL requests
Once your free allocation is used up, you will have to pay a charge for any further requests, as follows:
• Renewal: £ 3.00
• Secure Electronic Delivery/photocopy of article or chapter: £ 3.00
• Loan of book or whole journal: £ 3.00
• Thesis: £ 12.00
Please ask the Library staff for more information. If payment is required it must be submitted with the request. Inter library loans take an average of three weeks to arrive, although journal articles and book chapters can be much quicker..
Journal articles and book chapters are delivered by Secure Electronic Delivery via email unless you specifically request a photocopy. This is faster and delivered direct to your PC. Please ask Library staff about this service or read the information provided.
Request forms are available at the Library Enquiry desk or by downloading them from the links below. For a thesis both a request form and a thesis declaration form is required.
Completed forms should be placed in the Inter-Library Loans box at the Library Enquiry desk or sent (by email or post) to:
Roehampton University Library
Digby Stuart College
London SW15 5SZ
You can ring the Inter Library Loans office on 020 8392 3252
A signature is required both when collecting and when returning an Inter-Library Loan (book or journal). For this reason, Inter-Library Loan items can only be collected and returned at the Library Enquiry desk during core hours: Monday-Friday: 9am-7pm
Inter-Library Loans can be renewed only by contacting the Inter-Library Loans team (firstname.lastname@example.org) and providing your loan reference number (FHJ number).
Every renewal request will be counted as a standard Inter-Library Loan request and will therefore be taken from your free allocation or will need to be paid in advance if you have used up all your Inter-Library Loans free allocation.
Our suppliers will only accept our renewal request on the item due date (not before) and we will receive a confirmation of the renewal a few days after the original due date. If you incur any fines because of the delay in the supplier response we will waive those fines.
