Inter-Library Loan Applications

The MTU Inter-Library Loan Department handles arrangements with other libraries for borrowing materials that are unavailable from our stock.


Inter-Library Loan Lending Policy

Due to the fact that Inter-Library Loans are an increasingly expensive resource, this service is restricted to Post-graduate students and MTU staff that require loans for work-related research.

Materials are loaned to the MTU Library as a courtesy, and their conditions of use, including due dates, must be respected. Failure to return Inter-Library Loan materials on time jeopardizes the MTU Library's liaisons with other libraries and could adversely affect other patrons needing Inter-Library Loan services.

- As a result of this, some returnable items may require a deposit of €30.00

- Please note that any fines incurred are the responsibility of the requestor and their Department.

- Lending rights for items borrowed are directed by the Supplier Library and that Reference titles can only be viewed within the Library

- Users who return Inter-Library Loan materials late will be issued with a formal warning.

- Users who subsequently return Inter-Library Loan materials late will lose Inter-Library Loan privileges.
