The document delivery service allows you to request items from other libraries when they aren’t available through LibrarySearch. During the current lockdown 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. We previously announced that we were removing all charges from this service until 22nd January 2021, however to continue to support you during the COVID-19 pandemic we are now extending this free provision until the end of the academic year.

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

You can get advice on document delivery by emailing for Canterbury requests and for Salomons requests.

We will respond to your request within 5 working days (please allow longer over the winter break). We will let you know if the e-book is available to add to our collection, and update you on how long it will be before you can read it.
