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.

Please note: This service is for your academic study, teaching or research. Items for personal use should be obtained via the public library service.

The service is available to:

  • Academic and other members of University staff
  • Research, post-graduate and undergraduate students

We also loan materials to other libraries.

Distance learning and part-time research students

If you are a distance learning student please see the specific information about postal book loans and requesting copies of extracts from the David Wilson Library's collections.  You can also request copies of extracts from items which we do not hold in the library.
