If there is something you need that is not available through SHU- for example, a book we don’t have in our collection or an article from a journal we don’t subscribe to- you can request a copy through the Document Delivery Service. You can find details about this service and a link to the request form here – https://students.shu.ac.uk/shuspacecontent/lc/access-books-journal-articles-unavailable-shu
Articles will usually be sent in an e-mail as a secure PDF. Books will be sent to the library you request for collection. It is important to return books on the date given, as these books cannot be renewed.
You can also join other university libraries through the SCONUL scheme. Usually, this will give you access to the library where you can use the books for reference. More details of the SCONUL scheme can be found here – https://students.shu.ac.uk/shuspacecontent/lc/borrowing-other-libraries-0
