The Library provides a document delivery service for all current Newbold students and staff. It enables you to get items not stocked by the Library but vital for your research.

Only make requests for items you really need. The Document Delivery service is not available to External members.

  • Final year undergraduate students: 10 free requests
  • Postgraduate students: 30 free requests



The material normally takes around 2 weeks to arrive. You will get an email when an item becomes available. Books and journal articles will be left at the Information Desk. Journal articles will be posted to part-time students who are not on campus regularly.

Books from other libraries are for use in the Library only and should not be taken outside the security gate.


Before an article can be released a Copyright Declaration must be completed and signed. If you are not on the Newbold campus, the declaration will be sent to you. Return the signed form by post or by scanned email attachment.

Articles obtained through Document Delivery are for the requester’s use only and can only be used for non-commercial study or research. By signing the Copyright Declaration you confirm that you will follow the current copyright policy.

Loan period

Books obtained through Document Delivery are normally available for three weeks. In some cases extensions are possible. Renewals are counted as additional requests.
