We are continuing to experience delays in supplying some inter-library loan requests due to maintenance work being carried out at the British Library. Parts of the building have been closed temporarily, leading to the unavailability of some items.
Whenever we are unable to obtain an item from the the British Library we then try other locations. This takes time and may delay the process by a week or more.
The British Library recently issued a statement saying that their priority is “to get higher use collection items back in service as quickly as possible, with some of the most heavily-used material now scheduled to be back in use by mid-April”.
If you have any concerns, or simply want an update on your request please contact the Inter-Library Loans Department on 9097 6136 (McClay Library) or 9063 2551 (Medical Library).
