Cost of an Interlibrary loan

Cost of an Interlibrary loan

There is no charge for Interlibrary Loans but there is a cost to the Library. Please ensure that there are no easily accessible alternatives to the item you are requesting and that you have enough time for the item to be delivered before making a request.

Renewing your item

The Library will pay for up to 2 renewals. Please ensure that you return items that are no longer needed on time as the Library incurs a charge for each renewal.

Charges for replacing lost items or items not returned

It is important that you take care of your interlibrary loan as if an item is not returned for any reason you will be liable for a minimum replacement fee of £179.41. If the British Library charge a replacement fee and the item is then returned there will still be an administration charge of £97.86.
