Document supply from the Law Library

The Law Library will be closed on Saturday 27 and Monday 29 August 2022.

Due to COVID 19, we are currently not offering the document supply service. Please keep an eye out for announcements when we resume.

The Law Library offers a document delivery service so that items can be provided throughout the UK and overseas.

Document delivery

The Bodleian Law Library offers a document delivery photocopy service for law firms and other individuals who are not part of the Inter-Library Loan or British Library systems. When you place an order, you will provide information about yourself, which we will use to provide you with the items you requested.  Our privacy policy is here.

How to place an order

If you are an individual requesting copies for private study, please contact the Bodleian Law Library so that we can send you a copyright declaration form unless the material requested is out of copyright. This must be signed and returned to the library before we supply the copy. Please tell us if you are a UK student.

If you are a commercial customer, please complete the request form (Word, 61KB) and post, fax or email it to the Bodleian Law Library.

If you require copies for use in judicial proceedings, please contact the library so that we can send you a declaration form. This must be signed and returned to the library before we supply the copy.

Delivery

Photocopy requests are dealt with in order of receipt and will be processed as quickly as possible. We aim to process requests within 24 hours of receipt or before the end of the following working day (Mondays – Fridays). Please check for information on library closed periods.

We can supply copies by fax, post or email.
