Document Supply Services
On our homepage you will find various document supply services of other libraries as well as commercial supply services. They are an alternative to the classic interlibrary loan as the delivery period is shorter, and the order is sent directly to the address indicated by the customer. It is possible to order copies of journal articles, and sometimes monographs can be ordered as well.
Please note that all supply services listed require registration, orders will be charged, and fees can differ considerably. Information on the current terms and conditions can be found on the websites of the various supply services.
