It is free to borrow books using the Inter Library Loans service, but you will need to pay the British Library renewal fee of £4.50 if you wish to renew an item past its initial due date.  Renewals can only be granted for a maximum of three weeks.  

The lending library decide whether you can renew an item, so it is important to tell us before the item is due if you would like to request a renewal. We can't renew overdue items; fines on these will be 75p/day.

Requests for renewals and further details can be made at your usual Library Help Desk or by email to
