Impact of Covid-19
Like many organisations, the British Library has had to learn to adapt in a radically-changing environment. The global pandemic has made a considerable impact on our ability to provide as much content through British Library On Demand as we usually do, but we are working hard to improve this. Thank you for your patience during this unprecedented period.
Many of you will have sent immediate download requests in recent weeks, and our increased capacity to supply electronic articles from partner sites has enabled us to fulfil these. Our next phase, when safe to do so, will be to resume operations at our Boston Spa site with a reduced number of staff. This will allow us to offer materials from our print collections for supply for On Demand and EHESS. It will also increase the number of requests we can satisfy from electronic sources.
EHESS - The British Library is committed to support our colleagues in Higher Education as you make the necessary transition to online teaching. Find out how we are restarting our operations to support you.
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
