New, improved Document Delivery service

by Debbie

From the beginning of February 2012 Imperial College will be moving onto the new British Library Document Supply Service (BLDSS). Once the system is implemented you will gain the following benefits:

  • All documents, when available, will be delivered in colour.
  • Articles supplied as hardcopy will be in an A4 sized stapled booklet format (A3 folded in half).
  • Users will receive reminders if they have not downloaded documents supplied to them electronically 7 days before the end of the 30 day download period.
  • The current loan period will be extended from 3 weeks to 5 weeks.

During the deployment period the current service will not be disrupted.

There will be a change to the email address for documents sent by the British Library Secure Electronic Delivery (SED) service. The sender’s name will appear as This should be added to your approved or safe senders list in Outlook so you do not delete the email.
