Interlending Service Interlending Service

What is Interlending?

If you need access to any documents not available in UEA Library or available to us electronically  via our subscriptions then the Interlending Service will try to help you to access what you need as quickly as possible.

This might include:

  • Borrowing items on your behalf from another Library
  • Supply journal articles or chapters of books in electronic format or as photocopies.
  • Acquiring books or electronic books from Ebook Central or other sources.
  • We will also provide advice on how to access resources that we do have already available but you have had problems finding or downloading.
