Our services: Using the Library: Document Delivery Service

Current services available

Due to the on-going COVID-19 situation we are predominantly supplying chapters and articles from e-books or e-journals. Only a handful of our usual suppliers are able to make scans from physical items at this time. We are now able to offer a limited lending service, primarily from The British Library.

Delivery times will be longer than usual due to pressures on the supplying libraries and not everything will be available.

Ask DULib

The Document Delivery Service (DDS) allows staff and students of Durham University to obtain material not currently held by the Library.

Charges

Please note that there may be a small charge made towards the total cost of obtaining the item. Detail of charges can be found here.

Before you start

  • Check our catalogue to confirm that the book or journal is not available in our library.  

  • Check the internet. A quick internet search can find review papers, open access journals, government publications and old books, which are out of copyright.
