The document delivery service allows you to request items from other libraries when they aren’t available through LibrarySearch. At present most libraries are unable to provide physical items but we are still having success fulfilling requests for journal articles, book chapters and other items that can be supplied in a digital format.

The document delivery service usually costs £2.00 per request for undergraduate students, however to support you during the current Covid-19 measures, we are removing all charges from this service until the 31 August.

The restrictions on the number of document delivery requests you can make each year remain the same. 

Document delivery requests can be made through LibrarySearch.

Visit the document delivery page for more information https://www.canterbury.ac.uk/students/current-students/library/document-delivery.aspx

You can get advice on document delivery by emailing library.docdel@canterbury.ac.uk for Canterbury requests and library.salomons@canterbury.ac.uk for Salomons requests.
