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