Inter-site Loan Service

The Inter-Site Loan Service facilitates the transfer of items from Penglais campus (Hugh Owen Library) to be delivered to Llanbadarn campus (Thomas Parry Library) and vice versa. The inter-site loan service is not available between the Hugh Owen Library and the Physical Sciences Library. Delivery can also be made to Gogerddan Campus and the School of Art. Please note, School of Art deliveries are for School of Art students and staff only.

  • Before placing the request, please consider going to the Library yourself to get the item you require. It may be quicker than using the service.
  • Requests can be made by signing into Primo, the library catalogue, finding the required item (item should be listed as ‘Available’), clicking on the ‘Find & Request’ tab and selecting the ‘INTER-SITE' option. You will be asked to select a pick up location and a date after which you do not require the item anymore.
  • If an item you needs is out on loan already, you can reserve it so that when it is returned it is held at the Enquiry Desk for three days for you to collect. You will be emailed to let you know the item is waiting for you. How do I reserve an item?
  • If you have requested the book before 9am it should be delivered to your chosen location by 3pm the same day during term time. Any requests received after 9am will be delivered the following day. Please note turnaround times can vary and are dependent on a number of factors. During vacation time the service will run twice a week in line with store retrieval.
  • Upon delivery your requested item will be held at your chosen location. You will receive a notification when it is ready for collection.  We will hold the item for 4 days after which, it will be returned to its original library. You are free to return your item to any of our libraries.
  • This service is for standard loan and three day loan books. We are unable to supply journals, reference or ‘For use only in the library’ materials and short loan books through this service. If you have any queries please consult a member of staff.
