Requesting journal articles, books or information

You can request photocopies and loans of materials either from Mid Yorkshire NHS Staff Libraries stock or from other libraries if we do not hold items locally.

We can usually supply requests within 7-10 days of receipt of a correctly completed request form, should you require the information urgently speak to a member of the library team.

Copyright declaration

I declare that:
I have not previously been supplied with a copy of the same material by you or any other librarian.I will not use the copy except for research or private study and will not supply a copy of it to any other person. To the best of my knowledge, no other person with whom I work or study has made or intends to make, at or about the same time as this request, a request for substantially the same material for substantially the same purpose. I understand that if the declaration is false in a material particular, the copy supplied to me by you will be an infringing copy, and that I shall be liable for infringement of copyright as if I had made the copy myself.
