Specifying a Maximum Cost or a Need By date

If you would like to place an order with a Maximum Cost or a Need By date, please place an order via the Online Ordering interface. 

While on-line you will be able to check British Library holdings, item availability and the price more easily. You will also be able to track the progress of your order.

How important are accurate and complete bibliographic details?

BLDSS is an automated system and brings many advantages, such as more immediate information; but, like all computer systems, it does rely on good data so it is imperative that all requests contain as full & accurate bibliographic details as possible. The order will automatically progress to the Premium Service with its associated charges if the information supplied is lacking in detail or is wrong.
