Interlibrary loans: online requests now available
Submitted by Georgina Dimmock, Head of Academic Liaison, LLS
Library and Learning Services has launched a new online interlibrary loan form, making it quicker and easier for you to apply for and receive Interlibrary Loans. Using the new form you can submit online requests for books and journal articles for your personal use. To use the form, just follow the Inter Library Loan link from the Library catalogue and login with your usual library account details (user name and four digit PIN).
If you are a member of staff and wish to request an article for digitisation and eventual use on an Aspire reading list then please contact the digitisation team.
Secure Electronic Delivery (SED)
While you can still choose to receive books and articles in print via Interlibrary Loan, you can also choose to receive journal articles digitally via the British Library’s Secure Electronic Delivery route. If you choose to received items digitally, a PDF of the item will be sent by the British Library to your email account. To open the PDF you will first need to download a free piece of software to your computer called Adobe Digital Editions. Information about this can be found on the British Library’s SED web page.
Please note, articles delivered via SED can only be printed once and they will automatically delete from your computer after 14 days due to the British Library’s digital rights management (DRM).
