Request It!

A one-stop shop for requesting research material we don’t have available in the Library, be it an article, chapter, or entire book

Not on Library Search? Request It!

Although every effort is made to ensure we have all the books, journals and articles you could possibly need, there may be times when the specific item you need for your research is not available through Library Search. 

When that happens, we can Request It! for you, either by borrowing it from another library (inter-library loan), or by buying a copy for you to borrow.  

Please complete the correct form from the links below and provide as much information as possible.  

Please note, we will do our best to fulfil requests but this may not always be possible due to availability, copyright restrictions, cost, size and condition of materials.

To access the forms you will need an MMU ID and password. We can't accept requests from external members of the Library.

How long will it take?

Leave plenty of time to get your request. We advise a minimum of 3 weeks.

All photocopies of journal articles and book chapters will be sent via email.  Electronic books will be available to access via Library Search using your University ID and password.  We are unable to post out books, but we will notify you when they are ready for collection.


Please consult EThOS if you require a UK thesis.

If the thesis you require is not available via EThOS then please use the online form.
