What is an Interlibrary Loan?
Bedfordshire Libraries have the ability to request any book or journal article published, either from our own stock, local library services in the East of England via the regional catalogue or the British Library. This means that you can request anything that has been published and receive it in your inbox (journal articles) or as a 4-week physical loan (books).
If you have Discovery?
Hospital Staff at Luton and Bedford, GPs and CCG staff can request Interlibrary Loans directly from your Discovery Service.
Search the service for any journal or book that you require, and click the 'Request Interlibrary Loan' or 'Request from Library' buttons if it is not available. Fill out the contact form and the supporting library service will receive an automated request to supply the book or journal article.
If you don't have Discovery?
Community and Public Health staff can request an Interlibrary Loan from your local library service at
