Articles from the British Library

For those of you who use our Literature Requesting Service there is a new service available from the British Library.

At present when you fill in the online requesting form and we get articles from the British Library they are mainly sent in the post directly from the British Library, however it is now possible to receive these directly electronically from the British Library.  This should mean that you get your articles quicker.

If you want to do this please go to the following website http://fileopen.bl.uk where you will need to download a plugin (the top link).  Once that is installed, then download the test document (bottom link) to make sure that it has worked correctly.

If you then email the distance learning account dls@cf.ac.uk to let us know that you would like to receive articles that way in the future.
