Document delivery services are an alternative to interlibrary loan. You order the desired items online – without taking the holdings of Paderborn University Library into account – and they will be delivered directly to your workplace within a short time. Depending on the type of media, delivery is made by post or fax. Due to copyright law, electronic delivery by e-mail or FTP is very limited.
All delivery services listed are chargeable and the costs are considerably higher than the fees for an interlibrary loan order. Most delivery services require personal registration. Payment is usually made by invoice.
