Theses and dissertations submitted to
UK institutions may be requested by Inter-library Loan (ILL). It is also possible to request ILLs from overseas institutions but this can take many weeks and requests may be refused. Also note that requesting items from overseas can be very costly to the Library and, therefore, we ask that non-essential requests are avoided.
