Interlibrary loans

LibrarySearch has a function that allows you to search libraries worldwide, and place requests to borrow print books and download electronic journal articles that we do not have in our collections at Brookes.

First, search for the item using LibrarySearch. If it does not appear, tick the 'Libraries worldwide' checkbox on the left-hand side.

If you see that the item you want is 'Held by other libraries worldwide', click the title and then look for the option to 'Request interlibrary loan'. Log in as an Oxford Brookes students and complete the details on the online form before submitting your request.



Citing your sources (also called referencing) is an essential part of your academic work and is explained fully on our library referencing webpage.

The Library also has a printed guide to citing your references using the Harvard (Author-Date) system, available as a word file or PDF.

Cite Them Right Online shows you how to reference a wide range of sources (books, journal articles, web sites) using exactly the same Harvard style used at Brookes.

Endnote is a tool for storing and organising your references, and it will also work with Word or Pages to create a fully formatted bibliography from your reference library.
