Impact of Covid-19
In line with current restrictions on working practices, the British Library is providing a limited British Library On Demand Service from our electronic stores and partner sites only.
If your organisation is working on Covid-19 related research or you are in the NHS, NICE or Public Health organisations, we are continuing to prioritise your requests and will endeavour to satisfy your requests from our electronic resources. If your request is related to Covid-19 please submit your request via the two hour ordering service. Although we are not providing two hour delivery, this will allow us to prioritise your requests effectively. Please note, you will not be charged the higher fee.
At this time we are unable to accept any requests for loans. All requests for copies from our electronic holdings that we cannot supply will be asked to reapply in six weeks, while requests for copies from our print holdings will be asked to reapply in 10 weeks
The British Library has collated a list of public health information and research publications that are freely available to support the public, researchers and policymakers during the current Covid-19 pandemic. You can find the list here. In addition, you may find material which is available through the Open Access Button. This tool allows you to access research content which is available free and unrestricted online.
If you are an EHESS user, this service is currently under partial suspension. We continue to supply any item which indicates a price of £5.60 on the DCS (therefore held in our digital stores) which can be automatically supplied.
If you have any further queries please contact our Customer Service Department through email at email@example.com. British Library Customer Services are currently unavailable to take phone calls.
Please do bear with us during this difficult period and regularly check back for updates. You can also follow us on twitter to keep up to date @ondemandBL.
British Library On Demand is the document supply service from the British Library. We scan and send chapters and articles from our collections so you can have them when and where you need them
