Obtaining items not held in stock
As part of your research you will need to access material we do not hold in stock. Our Document Supply Service can usually obtain this material for you whether it be a book, journal article, or conference proceeding.
Complete the appropriate on-line Document Supply request form (choose from the list below):
most cases, items are supplied from the British Library Document Supply
Centre in Yorkshire. The more bibliographic information you can provide
on the form, the quicker the British Library will be able to fulfill
Secure Electronic Delivery
majority of journal article requests can now be delivered direct to
your desktop using Secure Electronic Delivery (SED). Articles are sent
as PDF's and you will need to install the FileOpen plugin to your PC. This is very straightforward. For more information on FileOpen including the plug in and a help guide click here. If you have problems installing the plug in you will need to contact ISD via the helpdesk on in.beds.
