Important Service Update

Library users are now able to place interlibrary loan requests for physical items, in addition to the existing digital service for articles and chapters. This is limited to University of Edinburgh students, staff, official visitors and NHS Lothian staff.

Return of Interlibrary Loans 

You may return your ILL items to the Main Library using the book returns machine in the entrance area, or to the site library from where your ILL request was collected. 

Requesting from other University of Edinburgh library sites: August 2022

Requesting from other University of Edinburgh Library sites is not currently available.

Requests for borrowing physical items can only currently be placed on items held at the University Collections Facility or items on loan to another user.
