The Book and Copy Delivery Service is a means by which the Library will post books held in stock and copies of journal articles or book chapters directly to your home or work address. This service is for staff and students of the University.

£3* per loan.

Photocopies will be charged at the rate of 4p per page up to a maximum of £3.00

*If you have a current disability support plan, book loans will be sent free of charge. Photocopies are charged at the same rate as above. You should select the relevant option on the request form and we will process accordingly.

When we receive your request we will process it and the charge will be added to your library account. Charges for this service are counted as outstanding fines on your record and must not exceed £10.00 in total to ensure that your use of library services is unaffected. You can pay by any of the following methods and the charge will then be removed from your record:
