Loans from other libraries

Books and journal articles not available locally or electronically can be obtained from other libraries on your behalf.

The document supply service is available and free to all registered members.

You can ask for up to 10 items a week by telephoning 020 3228 6141 or emailing library@slam.nhs.uk.

Standard requests are usually handled within one working day of receipt. Delivery time is dependent on the supplying library so cannot be guaranteed. Items can be obtained urgently though a rapid response service if necessary.

Non-NHS papers

If you are a member of NHS staff, articles supplied by another NHS library are covered by the NHS copyright licence so these requests can be processed without paperwork.

However, if we have to source a paper from outside of the NHS, we will ask you to complete a copyright declaration stating that you will use the material for private study or non-commercial research.
