If you have requested journal articles through our Document Supply service, you'll know that most of them come from the British Library, either in pdf or in print.
From the 21st May 2018, the British Library will change the way it supplies you with electronic documents. They will be using a service called DRM Lite.
DRM Lite allows you to open articles on multiple devices, including mobiles, and access content in different locations.
In many ways this is an improved service, but you have to register for a British Library On Demand account, either beforehand or upon receipt of the British Library document.
We also found that DRM Lite worked better on Internet Explorer, rather than Chrome, when it came to downloading the pdf.
Printing and accessYou can print one paper copy of the document. One you have saved the electronic copy it last for 3 years before expiring. Making further electronic copies, converting the file into other formats, or altering the text is not allowed..
