Document Supply and the British Library Asbestos Removal

Read important information regarding access to British Library items available from Document Supply

Currently the British Library Boston Spa Document Supply Centre is having a year-long removal of asbestos carried out. This means some materials may be harder for the Document Supply section to obtain than normal as they may not be immediately retrievable. In the event that the British Library is unable to supply them then the library will attempt source them from other libraries.

However, this may make supplying some items to customers take a slightly longer period of time to achieve.  As a further consequence some items will be supplied for loan with a shorter borrowing period than normal, depending on the supplying library's rules.

Please contact the Document Supply team, tel +44(0)116-252-2039 if you have any questions.
