Changes to Document Delivery via the British Library

We have received the update below about changes the British Library have had to introduce to their On Demand service which we use for our Document Delivery: 

"Following the additional advice from the UK Government on 23 March 2020, the British Library is providing a limited British Library on Demand Service from our electronic stores only. Any requests for documents from our print holdings which were submitted before 24 March and are currently in process will not be supplied and will not receive any further notification or response.

We have had to suspend the EHESS (Enhanced Higher Education Supply Service) Service to UK Higher Education and our Loan Service.

Our Customer Service Department are answering emails but currently can’t take phone calls.

Please do bear with us during this difficult period and regularly check back for updates and the latest news. You can also follow us on twitter to keep up to date."

Searching for electronic content

If you are already registered with the On Demand service you can search for content through the On Demand page.

To use the On Demand service you need to register for a British Library Online Account and then associate that account with Staffordshire University.  Once this is confirmed then you can search for and order available electronic content.
