University Library

Copy Service for Part-Time and Distance-Learning Students

This service is open to university members registered on part-time or distance-learning courses. It is designed to provide access to printed materials for students who have difficulty visiting the library. The service is not intended for full-time students who should have ready access to the Library. Full time students on placement away from the university as part of their courses are eligible to use the service, however you should ask you supervisor to get in touch with Judith Walton to confirm the dates of your placement before making requests.

To request a copy select the relevant online request form:

Fill in the details of the article you want copying, and read and acknowledge the copyright declaration by typing YES into the box. The article will be scanned and delivered to your Durham University email address as an email attachment.

There is a charge of £1.00 per scanned article and this charge will be added to your record when the item is supplied.

If you wish to request an article which is not held in our collection please use the Document Delivery Service.

Full-time students can request copies of journal articles through the Inter-site Copy Service as long as the journal is held at another site: the inter-site copy service is not intended for shipping articles between Durham libraries.
