Inter Library Loans [ILL] and Secure Electronic Delivery [SED]

Documents on the Library website with information about Secure Electronic Delivery [SED] have just been updated.

Following enquiries made to Inter Library Loans Staff from academic and research colleagues it might be useful to recap on the procedure:


  • Staff/Research Staff do not automatically receive articles/papers electronically. Before adding your name to the list of SED users you are required to confirm successful download of the British Library test document. This is included in the introductory e-mail which you receive if you request SED, along with three help sheets – SED Setting Up, SED FAQ and Instructions for Receiving and Managing SEDs.


  • The electronic copies once received and printed cannot be stored. The electronic copy is available on the British Library secure server for a period of 14 days, after which the file will be deleted.
