Document delivery request form

If you can’t find the articles you’re looking for in our electronic journals collection, complete the form below to request copies. Material will be provided from the College collections where possible or sourced from other libraries if necessary.


Temporary closure and partial services

From Monday 19 August 2019, the RCOG Reading Room will be closed until it reopens with the rest of the College when we move to our new home in Union Street. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

  • Partial services on offer: The closure enables the staff to retain an online enquiry and research service whilst packing the Archive, Library and Museum collections for removal to Union Street.
  • Contact for all your online enquiries, such as: enquiry handling, access to e-journals and e-books, inter-library loans and literature searches. However, our response times may take a little longer than usual and we will not be able to provide document delivery from our print collections.
