Get the full text for the articles you want

Have you ever found the perfect article for your assignment but when you go to find the link to the PDF or full text it's not there? Don't stress, because you can still get your hands on a copy of the full text!

Bond Library provides a service called Document Delivery, where on behalf of you the library will source the full text of the article from another library - for free too!

Not only can you request a copy of a journal article, but you can also request books that Bond Library doesn't have through the Document Delivery service.

There is a tiny catch though. Getting these books and articles to our library doesn't happen instantly. The turnaround time for books and journal articles usually takes:
  • 3-5 days for journal articles
  • 5-10 days for books
All you have to do is make sure you have the full details of the book or journal article (title, author, etc.) and fill in the appropriate form on the Document Delivery page.
Make sure you do your research early so you can take advantage of this great service.
