We will investigate from where and how we might be able to supply the document you require and will keep you informed on progress via email.

If authorisation from your school is needed we will contact the person you have named in your request via email to confirm ( yourself) and will follow up with them if we do not receive a quick response. 

If it is a physical item then you will be informed when it is available for you to collect. Please note that some items may only be able to be used in the Library. 

If it is a journal article or book chapter being delivered electronically it will be sent directly to your email address. Some suppliers will provide paper copies and these will be available for you to collect at the Library Helpdesk or you can ask for them to be sent to your department. .
