The Easter weekend is a public holiday in the UK, so the British Library’s site in Boston Spa, Yorkshire will be closed. This includes the processing of British Library On Demand orders from our physical collections and third-party suppliers and our Customer Services team. This closure will be reflected in the dispatch dates estimated by our online ordering interface. Please note, due to current restrictions and limited staff, the service may already encounter delays
You will still be able to order items from our electronic stores for immediate download.
If we receive your order after 16:00 BST on Thursday 1 April, we won’t start processing it until we reopen on Tuesday 6 April at 08:00 BST. Any orders that we receive after 16:00 on 1 April will be timed from 08:00 on 6 April.
