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.
Who can use the service?
The service is available to:
University Academic Staff
Authorisation is required for postgraduate students by the following schools: AMA, BIO, CHE, ENV, HSC, HUM, LAW, MTH, PPL
Authorisation is required by all schools.
We will contact the lecturer you name in your request via email for them to confirm their approval.
For taught students the person you name is normally the lecturer teaching the module you need the requested item for or your personal adviser.
For postgraduate research students it would be your research supervisor.
The service is NOT available to external borrowers.
Researchers can choose to use a research grant to pay for interlending requests. There is a box for research grant numbers to be added.
