Frequently Asked Questions

Can Falmouth students and staff borrow from the University of Exeter libraries?

Requesting a whole book

If a book is not available from Falmouth University’s Library Search, you can search the Exeter Library Catalogue for a print copy and request the item yourself.

Filter your search to Format = Print, and click ‘Request it, Falmouth University staff and students’ on the right-hand side of the page. You’ll receive an email when your book arrives at your chosen Library. Delivery may take up to 7 days.

Requesting a chapter scan

You can also request a scan of a single chapter of a book held at University of Exeter’s Streatham campus. Find a print book on the catalogue and from the ‘Request it, Falmouth University staff and students’ button on the right-hand side of the page, select for it to be emailed from the Exeter Campus Library.

You’ll need to complete details of what you need – especially the book title and page numbers.

Note that copyright law limits this service to a single chapter, so if you need more, request the book to be delivered physically.
