Document Delivery

Stampa questa pagina

The document delivery service (Document Delivery, DD) provides:

  • For institutional users: the delivery of the documents/articles/photocopied parts of books not owned, either in hard copy or in electronic form, from any library in Pisa (city);

  • For external libraries: the delivery of documents/articles/photocopied parts of books owned by the libraries of the University

 

For institutional users

The requests for document delivery can be sent using the Nilde service (see Nilde users instructions). The Modern Languages and Literatures Libraries 1and 2, use a specific form ILL-DD/LM1-LM2 (not the Nilde service) for the requests for document delivery.

Before enabling the services, fill out a request for document delivery, make sure the item of interest is not published in a magazine subscription or in possession by one of the other University libraries or in Pisa, by doing the appropriate research.

The service is usually free of charge (the university libraries cover the costs). Only in cases where it is necessary to use commercial channels or providers that perform these services for a fee, then it is expected that the user will pay the expense. It is always advised to the user before activating the service.

For external libraries

The requests for document delivery can be sent to all libraries through the Nilde service.

Before activating the services, fill out a request for document delivery, make sure the item of interest is published in a magazine subscription or in possession by one of the University of Pisa libraries, by doing the appropriate research in the Italian catalog of periodicals (ACNP).

The service is usually free for libraries, research institutes, public and private, Italian or foreign, with which we have active cooperation and providing the gratuity of mutual service. Otherwise there may be an expense to be paid. The University Libraries are widely available to establish relationships of mutual gratuity with institutions and public libraries.

 

The individual libraries have adopted specific solutions regarding this service: Always consult with them and also in the service page in your library.
