Interloans and other libraries
Service update (08.01.2021) : The Inter Library Loan (ILL) requesting service is limited nationally due to the recent lockdown. As a result, our service is altered until further notice.
- The ILL Team can provide electronic resources, such as one chapter from an e-book, or one article from an e-journal.
- The ILL Team cannot supply physical items, or scans from physical items at this time.
We will continue to monitor the situation and update this page. Please feel free to contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
The Library can borrow or obtain digital copies of research resources from other libraries in the UK and abroad for Courtauld students and staff through inter-library loan. Loans are administered by our interlibrary loans team: firstname.lastname@example.org

Courtauld MA & PhD Theses
The Book Library holds second lendable copies of PhD theses submitted by students of The Courtauld Institute of Art. PhD theses can be loaned to other academic and research libraries except the ones written in 2008 and 2009 which are available for consultation within the library only. We do not lend our MA theses but they can be viewed by appointment within the library.
