Distance Learners: e Books/Postal Loan

e Book Supply/Postal Loan Service

This service may gives registered distance learners the option of requesting the home delivery of books currently held in Middlesex University's Library stock.

All you need to do is place a request on the item you require - just remember to select the home delivery option if this is what you want:-

Requesting a book.

Where possible, we will provide you with access to an e copy of your requested title.

If an e copy is not available, we will post out a print copy.

Please note that where an e copy is available, we will only post a print copy if the requesting student has been assessed as requiring print by the University's Disability Support team.

If we are unable to supply an e or print copy of a title when you need it, you may wish to contact your Liaison Librarian to discuss alternative titles.
