Due to the Christmas Vacation at DMU Library (and also at other libraries across the UK which supply us with our Inter-Library Loan items) we will be unable to deal with any ILL requests which are submitted to us after 4pm on Friday 22 December 2023, until 9am on Monday 8 January 2024 inclusive.
Kimberlin Library will be open for study and borrowing of books, but with reduced hours of opening over the vacation.
Please note that:
However if you require any item urgently before then, please contact the team for further information.
We wish all our students, researchers, and staff an enjoyable Christmas break.
All students currently in their 2nd Year who are starting their dissertation research are eligible to request Inter-Library Loan items from the start of the Summer Term onwards, as well as throughout their 3rd year. We recognize that many students begin their research before they begin their 3rd Year, and we hope that this will help them to start their preparation and planning in good time.
If you are a 2nd Year student and need access to ILL items during the Autumn or Spring Terms of your 2nd Year, please contact your Subject Librarian in the first instance, before applying for any ILL items.
For further information on limits and eligibility regarding Inter-Library Loan requests, please see the ILL Entitlements page.
If you have a query about Inter-Library Loans, and you cannot find the answer in this Guide, please contact us at the email address below. We will endeavour to reply as promptly as possible, during office hours (Monday to Friday, 8.45 am to 5.30 pm).
