Accessing resources that are not online

Sometimes you may not find what you need online. This may be because the source:

  • you need is not available electronically (it is print only)
  • is not included in the University Library e-resource subscriptions
  • is not available freely online

If you have used Library Search to look for what you need and checked Google Scholar and you still cannot find what you need online you can use the Document Delivery Service.

Through the Document Delivery Service the Library will try and obtain the source you need either from:

  • our own print collections. We’ll copy or digitise book chapters or journal articles (in compliance with our copyright licence) and email them to you;
  • inter-library loan. We’ll try and find a digitised copy¬†of book chapters or journal articles for you from the British Library or another university library.

Tips for choosing a chapter to be copied (if an ebook is not available)

Check Google Books or Amazon

You may be able to view the contents page of a book by looking at a preview on Google Books or Amazon.
