Digital delivery allows the same access to materials while using software that doesn’t require plug-ins. This has been shown to make the user experience much more friendly and efficient.
Our recommended digital delivery format DRM Lite allows users to download content without installing third party software. Documents may be accessed for up to three years on multiple devices including laptops, tablets and smartphones offering a fully mobile delivery solution.
Moving away from paper deliveries will also allow the British Library to continue to improve its social responsibility and minimize environmental impact by reducing the amount of paper and plastic packaging currently used with postal delivery. The British Library is continuously looking at ways to be more environmentally friendly and we will provide updates as we make improvements.
