Interlending to other libraries

The University of Leicester's David Wilson Library is a rich scholastic resource filled with many unique collections, many of which we will consider loaning or supplying photocopies from to other document supply services.

We are members of the British Library network (LC/U-1) as well as LIEM, FIL and Conarls. We are also members of the IFLA Scheme. Please contact us if you wish to arrange a loan of items from our stock.

We do not normally loan items to private individuals, nor can we supply materials from our physical special collections.


Before placing a request for a thesis please visit the Leicester Research Archive site first to check for availability of a digitised thesis. Where it is not available a digitisation request should be submitted via EThOS.  There may be a one-off charge payable to EThOS for such requests.

If EThOS are unable to fulfil your request, please submit a request to Document Supply via your local or institutional library, as we may be able to loan a print copy of the thesis, if a second copy is held and the thesis is not under an embargo.  Please ensure that the library states on the request that the item is not available by EThOS.

If a second copy is not held, we may be able to provide a copy of the contents pages, from which a chapter can be selected for copying.  Again, please submit a request to Document Supply via your local or institutional library to arrange this.

Alternatively, we may permit physical access to the print original here at the University.  Please contact to make appropriate access and retrieval arrangements.
