Getting a Journal Article

1. Do You Have Access to the Full Text?

If an article isn't freely available, your OpenAthens account might give you access to full text. Register online for an NHS OpenAthens account if you haven't registered already.

If we don't subscribe to the journal, move to Step 2.

2. Request the Document

Our inter-library loans service can obtain the article for you. You'll need to be a registered member of the library.

  1. Please submit your request by logging into Library Search.
  2. Search the item you are looking for and select Request on the right of the screen.  
  3. Complete the Item details and Request details sections of the form, then click Submit Request.

The service can be used to request books, journal articles, theses, reports, conference proceedings, and individual conference papers.

How long will my request take to supply?

We use a variety of suppliers to source material and for that reason there is no fixed period of time that an ILL / DD request will take to supply.

Generally, however, requests take between 1 and 10 working days to be supplied. Many requests for extracts or parts of a publication are now delivered electronically as pdfs and for that reason are often supplied very quickly.

We will keep in regular contact with you while we process your request.

Loan Period

The loan period for inter-library loan items  is generally for 3-4 weeks.

Items can be recalled and the original loan date shortened. We will always inform you if this happens.

Some items are reference only. This means that they can only be consulted within the library here.
