 Document Supply

The Document Supply Service allows registered users to request items which are not available in the University Library.  Books, journal articles, reports, conferences, theses, standards and patents can all be obtained from around the globe.

Distance learning and part-time research students

If you are a distance learning or part-time research students, please see the specific information about postal book loans and requesting photocopies from David Wilson Library's collections.
