The Library’s Document Delivery Service – easy, convenient and free!

If you’re writing a dissertation, you’ll probably need to search beyond Stirling University Library for some research material. Did you know that the Library’s Document Delivery Service can give you access to books, articles, theses and conference proceedings?

You can request things we don’t have and we’ll try to get copies for you. Articles will usually be supplied in digital format – you can keep these. Books are loaned to us in print format – you can borrow these for 5 weeks.

The service is generally very quick – it takes just a couple of days for most journal articles to arrive. What’s more, it’s completely free for you to use this service! What’s not to like?

The easiest way to request things is via LibrarySearch. We’ve put together a guide with all the details you need. There’s also a video for those who prefer to watch:
