Electronic document delivery is changing

Do you use the inter-library loans service and request Secure Electronic Delivery (SED) of articles?

The British Library is changing the software you will need to read articles sent to you via this service. You will now need to download FileOpen, which works with any operating system and any version of Adobe Reader.

We hope that this will overcome the problems some of you have had with the previous software, Adobe Digital Editions. More information on FileOpen is here.

Any questions just ask the interlibrary loans team
