The Document Supply Service allows registered users to request items which are not available in the University Library.
If you’re looking for a book or article that we don’t have access to in our collections, we might be able to borrow it for you from another library. Submit your request using the Document Supply button in Primo, and we’ll do the rest.
Further information and online forms are available on the Document Supply webpage: https://www.aber.ac.uk/en/is/library-services/documentsupply/
