Inter Library Loan Articles and Book Chapters

If you have requested a journal article or book chapter via Inter Library Loans, it will usually be delivered as a downloadable PDF (also referred to as an SED – Secure Electronic Delivery document).

To access the PDF you will need to have an On Demand account with the British Library.

Important Information about your PDF:

  • To open documents you will need Adobe Acrobat Reader (you can get Adobe Acrobat Reader for free from https://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/ ).

  • Content can only be printed once, but can be downloaded to multiple devices.

  • You have 30 days from receipt of the email in which to download the content.

  • Downloaded content will remain available for 3 years.

  • Content can also be viewed and downloaded from any device via the link on the email, and can be transferred via USB stick.

  • You cannot alter the file in any way, although if your version of Adobe allows it you may be able to add brief notes.

Printed Articles

  • On occasion an article may be provided as a print copy by the lending library.

  • You will receive an email asking you to collect the item, by a specific date, from the Information Desk on Level 1 of the Charles Seale-Hayne Library. The print copy is yours to keep.

  • If you are unable to collect your request by the specified date, contact Inter Library Loans straight away. Failure to collect a request will result in a £15 non-collection fee being added to your account.
