Certain items held at outlying UCL sites can be requested to be transferred from one site to another for loan. Photocopies from journals can also be supplied.
Applications for inter-site material should be made by completing a paper or online inter-library loan request form. The completed request form should be submitted to the Issue Desk staff.
The online inter-library loan request form can also be used.
NB The Inter-site service is not available between the following "central" sites: Cruciform, Bartlett, Institute of Archaeology, Main and Science Libraries.
This is because these sites are geographically close to one another. Our expectation is that members would exercise their rights to use all UCL libraries, by visiting the site in person.
Current UCL/UCH staff and students can use this service.

We will endeavour to obtain the item as quickly as possible, however, we cannot guarantee to supply the item requested because the item may be missing from the shelf.
Items usually arrive within three to four days.
|How many requests can be made?
A limit of twelve ongoing requests, with no limit on the total number of requests can be made.
This applies so long as the requester's library record is current, has no outstanding charges and is entitled to use the service.
