International Non-Commercial Document Supply Service to be withdrawn

Chinese Terrestrial Globe

Due to reduced demand, the British Library is no longer able to offer its INCD Service and will withdraw it from 1 July 2016.

Published date:

The International Non-Commercial Document Supply (INCD) Service will be withdrawn from 1 July 2016. Since the overseas Library Privilege service was replaced with the INCD Service in January 2012, the Library has seen a significant decline in requests from overseas non-commercial organisations and demand for the INCD Service has reduced to a level where the service is no longer sustainable.

On termination of the service overseas non-commercial customers will continue to be able to use British Library On Demand to order items from the British Library, but will be required to pay a full copyright fee.

Please contact our Customer Services team should you require any further information.
