Inter-library loans

If you want to read something that is not available in Oxford, we will try to find it for you from another library. Find out more about inter-library loans.

We also make our library holdings available to UK and Irish libraries and organisations that have a British Library account.

 

We can supply loans to UK and Irish libraries and organisations with a British Library account, or overseas organisations on payment in advance with IFLA vouchers or via the LMML online shop. We do not lend to individuals. We cannot accept requests submitted on IFLA request forms.

All loans are strictly for library use only and cannot be taken out of the borrowing library for home reading. Items from our open shelves cannot be renewed, but other items can usually be renewed unless another request has been made for them. All loans are subject to recall. If an interlibrary loan item is lost or damaged whilst on loan to you, we will pass on to you the amount charged by the British Library for lost items.  

We can supply photocopies of library material for non-commercial purposes to organizations and individuals on payment of an invoice or payment in advance with IFLA vouchers, or via the LMML online shop.

The following items are not available for loan:

  • items over 100 years old  
  • collectable, fragile or unsuitably bound items  
  • items bound with others  
  • items on reading lists  
  • dissertations and theses submitted for Oxford University degrees (contact Oxford Theses for options and prices for copying).

Certain materials cannot be copied by the Document Supply service, eg out-of-copyright books in their entirety, very large items, fragile items, items bound with others. In these cases, libraries should contact our Imaging Services.

The Leopold Muller Memorial Library reserves the right to decline any request for any reason.
