Who pays for DDS requests?

A small fee is charged for each request. The majority of departments pay some or all of the charge for DDS requests for staff and/or postgraduates. If you pay for your own requests then the charge will be added to your library record when the book arrives (or when the article is supplied to you). Renewal charges are added to your library record as soon as the book is renewed by British Library. You can pay your charges with cash at the Library, or you can pay online via the "Library charges" section of your online library record.

Items listed in Durham University Catalogue as 'missing' will be supplied free of charge - please write 'Missing from library' in the 'Notes' field of the request form .

Select your department from the list below to see if you pay the charges for your Document Delivery Service requests, or if your department pays these charges for you.

It is not always clear who pays for your Document Delivery Service requests. Please contact DDS staff to ensure that your requests are charged correctly if:

  • you work in more than one department, or research institute
  • you are a student who is also doing paid work for the university
  • or you are a retired or emeritus member of staff.

Use the table below to see who pays for your Document Delivery Service requests.

  • If the table says "Dept pays" then charges for Document Delivery Service requests will be paid by your department. (Check the column for renewals to see if your department also pays renewal charges.) Check with your department to see if you have a set number of free requests each year because you may be charged (by your department) for requests once you use up your allocation.
  • If the cells in the table are marked "Library pays", then requests and renewal charges will be paid for by the University Library.
  • If the cells in the table are marked "You pay", then you are not covered by the scheme and the charge for your Document Delivery Service requests will be added to your Library record when the item arrives.
