Making a document delivery request
Always check Library Search before making a request - we may have the publication either online or in print in your campus library.
If the item is not in any of our libraries or online collections use the ORDER A BOOK OR ARTICLE in Library Search.
For an article from a journal at another Imperial campus library use the ORDER A BOOK OR ARTICLE on Library Search and we will email it to you.
Receiving documents electronically on your PC or mobile device
Journal articles, book chapters and conference papers obtained from:
- Imperial College campus libraries

will be sent to your College or NHS email address when possible.
The email will contain information you should follow to download the document provided.
